Gooch to Middlesbrough?

Gooch gives Borgetti "The Stare"

Oh, Gooch, don't do it, Middlesbrough is a godforsaken shithole of a town. Wait, go to a town closer to London. Or buy a train pass and expect to do some traveling. Make sure you have high speed internet and a really big TV 'cause there's nothin to do up there, man.

Well, at least you get to play with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbank and (if he sticks around) Mark Viduka. But Middlesbrough? Did you go there before you signed?

SkySports: Boro Move for American Ace

Middlesbrough look to have tied up a shock deal for USA star Oguchi Onyewu.

The 23-year-old, know as Gooch, is currently playing in Belgium for Standard Liege - but Boro are now understood to have tied up a deal for the highly-rated central defender.

Onyewu is set to partner Eddie Pope at the heart of the USA defence at the World Cup finals this summer - and a big tournament is being predicted for the giant defender.

After coming through the college system in America, Onyewu was snapped up by French side Metz - but he never settled and joined La Louviere on loan.

His form with La Louviere earned him a move to Standard - and he has been a regular with them for the past two seasons.

A number of clubs including Manchester United and Charlton Athletic are thought to have scouted Onyewu along with Boro - but understand the Teessiders have now made their move and a deal is now in place. Boro closing in on Onyewu
