Villa keeper Given already eyeing longer Middlesbrough stay

Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given was delighted to make a winning debut for loan club Middlesbrough.

Given kept a cleansheet for the 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers.

Given, who has also played for Newcastle and Sunderland, would not rule out extending his stay on Teesside.

He said: "It's great to be back in the North East, I spent so many years here. It's nice to complete the hat-trick at Middlesbrough.

"I was delighted to join. As soon as I got the call, I was straight up the A1."
