Hull manager Phil Brown expects Caleb Folan to wrap up his move to Middlesbrough by the end of the week. The Republic of Ireland striker is surplus to requirements at the KC Stadium having failed to score since the opening day of last season. With Brown looking to freshen up his squad, he has allowed the 26-year-old to join Boro on loan with a view to completing a permanent move in January. "We talked long and hard over the last two weeks over who we would let go," Brown told the Hull Daily Mail. "We always look to make decisions with a view to progress and as a result we've allowed Caleb to talk with Middlesbrough. "We've always been looking for someone to finish off the work of a more and more promising squad and now more than ever there are a lot of players on the front line competing for places. "Caleb didn't score in his four games and didn't really look like scoring either."
