Digard grateful for Aliadiere support at Middlesbrough

Didier Digard admits he'll be sticking close to fellow Frenchman Jeremie Aliadiere in his first weeks at Middlesbrough.

The former PSG midfielder told Boro's website: "At the beginning it is perfect to have Jeremie here. I don't know him personally but of course it is good to have a French-speaking player to help me.

"But it is important for me to get to know all of the players and to feel part of the club so I will be taking English lessons as soon as possible."
