Middlesbrough have completed the loan signing of Gaston Ramirez from Southampton.
Ramirez, 25, has made just five appearances for Southampton this season but two of them have come recently against West Ham and Norwich after an absence of two months from the side.
He also spent much of last term on loan to Hull, making 22 appearances - 11 as a substitute - and scoring once against Sunderland.
"I am really pleased. He is a really good player who knows the league and the country," Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka said.
"He has international experience and has played in the World Cup. He is another good player for us.
"He is the kind of player who wants to join us and that shows he is committed to us. He has played in the Premier League and I think it is important to bring in players with this kind of experience."
Ramirez has been told he can leave Southampton when his deal expires in the summer having moved for £12m from Bologna in 2012.
