The Dutchman completed the formalities of his loan switch from Huddersfield ahead of the opening the transfer window when he will officially become a Boro player.

“He’s one of the players we were looking to add to the squad,” said the boss.

“He’s got tremendous pace.

“He’s got a promotion with Huddersfield on his CV, he’s played for them in the Premier League and he’s played in the Championship with Wolves so he has a good pedigree.

“I think he will be a really good signing for us and offers something that we’ve been looking for.”
