Middlesbrough are hoping they can lure Francois Zoko away from Carlisle United.

The 28-year old Ivory Coast attacker impressed in a bounce match for Boro earlier this week and Tony Mowbray is now hoping he can add him to his squad before Thursday's Football League loan deadline.

Zoko has scored ten goals in 40 appearances for Carlisle since arriving from KV Oostende and has previously attracted interest from the likes of Wigan Athletic, Southampton and Sporting Gijon.
