Middlesbrough's goal drought now stretches to six games and more than 10 hours after yet another Championship goalless draw
Middlesbrough live updates
Championship side Middlesbrough have signed Newcastle winger Sammy Ameobi on loan until the end of the season.
Manager Tony Mowbray said: "He gives us a different option and more options in a similar way to Muzzy Carayol. He's an out and out attacking wide player, who can operate on either side and will be ideal when we want to play with two wingers."
The Middlesbrough manager faced the press on Tuesday ahead of his side's match against Leeds at the Riverside, needing a win to put Boro's promotion push back on track.
Mowbray's side have lost each of their last five matches and have slipped from second in the Championship to sixth.
