Middlesbrough will sign Norwich City striker Gary Hooper on loan, if they can agree a compromise with Norwich over his £30k a week wages.

Mustapha Carayol will re-join Chris Houghton at Brighton on loan before the window closes.

'Boro also looking at handing a trial to former Leeds Utd, Blackburn and England Goalkeeper Paul Robinson who is a free agent.

Hooper said only yesterday he wants to force his way into norwich's starting line up so that he can get international recognition. That won't happen at Middlesbrough.

I hope we keep Hooper.

Sure he is a fish out of water in the manager's preferred 4231.

However if we go to a more open 442 to chase a league game or to entertain the crowds in the lesser cup games then Hooper is the perfect player.

He is also a substitute CAM for Hoolahan in the 4231 and although not quite an exact fit he is a clever enough player to do a job.

Most importantly he has good stats and offers a variation in tactics to the manager of 352, 41212 and 442. Without him those options are not so credible.

Teams will eventually work out how to set up against a pressing 4231. When they do the manager will have to change things. Hooper gives him most of these options.

If he gets a decent run out in the cup games Hooper may well force his way into contention. Either way it is great that he wants to compete for a starting place. That is exactly the sort of attitude we need and another reason why we should keep him.
