Middlesbrough loan Jordan McGhee from Hearts

Middlesbrough have confirmed the loan signing of Hearts defender Jordan McGhee.

The Scotland Under-21 international, who has made 70 appearances at Tynecastle in all competitions, joins Aitor Karanka's side on a season-long deal.

Middlesbrough confirmed in a statement on their official website that they have an option to make the 19-year-old's deal a permanent one.

McGhee posted on his Twitter feed: "Delighted to be given the opportunity at @Boro looking forward to the season ahead".

He follows Marten de Roon, Viktor Fischer and Bernardo Espinosa as Middlesbrough's summer signings as they prepare for life back in the Premier League following a seven-year spell outside the top flight.
