The Welsh keeper has little chance of dislodging the impressive Mark Schwarzer in the Boro goal, but is desperate to play football in a bid to stay in Mark Hughes' plans.
Paul Jones is the man vying for a place in the Wales team with Crossley, and he is in a similar position at Southampton as Antti Niemi is performing superbly at St Mary's.
Stoke are reportedly ready to move for Crossley, and he has admitted that a loan move appeals to him.
He said: "I know that if I am playing football, it will put Mark Hughes in a difficult position.
"Steve McClaren (Boro boss) has said I can go out on loan because he wants to help me get in the Wales team."
