Manchester City's Bruno Zuculini joins Middlesbrough on short-term loan

Middlesbrough have signed Manchester City midfielder Bruno Zuculini on a month-long loan deal.

Zuculini, 22, joined City from Racing Club in his native Argentina in the summer of 2014 but has yet to feature in a competitive game for the Premier League side.

City also confirmed the move on their official Twitter feed.

The Argentina under-20 international now joins Boro on a short-term deal to gain first-team experience in England, having already been sent out for spells at Spanish clubs Valencia and Cordoba.

Aitor Karanka's Middlesbrough, who reached last season's Championship playoff final, are currently fourth in the table.
