Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme seals Middlesbrough loan move

Carl Ikeme
Ikeme has made just 16 appearances for Wolves due to injuries

Middlesbrough have signed goalkeeper Carl Ikeme from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a 28-day emergency loan.

Ikeme, 25, played in Friday's 3-2 friendly defeat by PSV Eindhoven and will add cover in the absence of the injured Jason Steele.

The arrival of Dorus De Vries from Swansea, added to the presence of Wayne Hennessey, means first-team opportunities are limited at Molineux.

Boro also have keepers Danny Coyne and Connor Ripley available for selection.

Nigerian national Ikeme spent time on loan at Leicester last season and has also had temporary spells with QPR, Sheffield United and Charlton.

His opportunities at Molineux have been stalled by a string of injuries including a hip problem, limiting the stopper to just 16 appearances in eight years.
