Newcomer wants longer stay
New signing Jozsef Varga wants to remain at Middlesbrough longer than his season-long loan from Debrecen.
The 25-year-old Hungarian international arrives next Monday to bolster manager Tony Mowbray's midfield ahead of the new campaign.
"Middlesbrough are a famous and big club and they signed me on Tony Mowbray's wish," Varga told the Northern Echo. "The manager looked around in more countries and was looking for a player for this position and said I was his main target.
"I've one year to prove my abilities in the Championship and, of course, I'd like Middlesbrough to sign me for a longer period," he added.
Varga spent last season on loan at Bundesliga outfit Greuther Furth but couldn't prevent their relegation from the top-flight.
