Deadline day signings James Léa Siliki and Andraž Šporar met their new team-mates for the first time at Rockliffe on Thursday.

The duo returned from international duty to take part in their first Boro training session ahead of the weekend trip to Coventry City.

With Paddy McNair also back from international duty, it was also the first opportunity for fellow loan signing Onel Hernandez to meet up with the full squad for the first time since his arrival from Norwich City.
