Middlesbrough midfielder Didier Digard has completed his loan move to Nice. The Ligue 1 club has confirmed on their website that Digard has moved to the Nice Stade Municipal du Ray on a six-month loan deal with the French club retaining the option to buy the 23-year-old at the end of the season.

Digard joined Boro in a protracted £4million switch from Paris St Germain under former boss Gareth Southgate in July 2008, but injuries have limited him to just 34 appearances.
