Middlesbrough boss Strachan welcomes Villa's Osbourne signing

Aston Villa midfielder Isaiah Osbourne has joined Middlesbrough on a three-month loan.

The 21-year-old, who trained with Boro for the first time this morning, has made 29 appearances for Villa since making his first team debut against Fulham three years ago.

Boro manager Gordon Strachan told the club's website: "I've known about Isaiah for about a year and he'll bring us more strength in the midfield area where we're definitely short on numbers.

"He's not a flair player, he's what I'd call a continuity player, but he'll also give us strength, height and get about the pitch."
