Tottenham starlet Milos Veljkovic has told the Serbian press that he will be joining Sky Bet Championship outfit Middlesbrough on a three-month loan deal.
Both clubs have reportedly agreed a deal in principle to bring the versatile teenager to the Riverside until January, with an option of extending the deal until the end of the season if both sides are happy.
The 19-year-old revealed the news whilst on international duty with Serbia Under-19s, and insisted he has spoke to Boro boss Aitor Karanka about the switch.
"I’m leaving on a three-month loan," Veljkovic told Belgrade daily Telegraf.
"Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka called me to talk about the possibility. He was previously an assistant to Jose Mourinho.
“I am happy to get the chance. In January, a loan could be extended to the end of the season."
