HUNCH: Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock

"I wanted to give him an opportunity," said Warnock.

"I came from non-league myself, I watched him play and I just had hunch. He knows Isaiah (Jones) too, which is a plus.

"I hope he enjoys himself here, it's a big ask but I hope he can excite everyone here like he excites me. He's got a great attitude."
