Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate will seal loan deals for Republic of Ireland pair Caleb Folan and Sean St Ledger this weekand is hoping to tie winger Adam Johnson to a new contract.
Southgate has seen off competition from rivals Newcastle to land Folan, who was left out of Hull's side on Saturday, just days after playing for the Republic of Ireland against South Africa.
The move for Preston defender St Ledger has been held up by a knee injury, which has been troubling him for the past fortnight.
