Jese Rodriguez news

Premier League side Middlesbrough are reported to have reach an agreement over the loan signing of Paris Saint-Germain ace Jese Rodriguez.

The Spanish winger has failed to attain regular playing time since his move from Real Madrid in the summer.

Boro boss Aitor Karanka had confirmed earlier in the week that his side were in discussions for the player, and according to L'Equipe, the club have agreed upon a loan deal for the 23-year-old.

Jese was initially said to favour a return to Spain with Las Palmas, but unfortunately the minnows were not in a position to match his salary package.

The former Spain Under-21 international has been previously on the radar of both Liverpool and Arsenal, and he will now seek to prove his credentials at the Riverside Stadium.

Jese earned 14 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain in the first half of the campaign - 12 of them from the substitutes' bench.
