Boro's record signing Alves granted work permit

Middlesbrough's record signing Afonso Alves is clear to begin his career at the Riverside after the Brazil striker was granted a visa.

However, he was unable to play for his new club in their match at Newcastle on Sunday because the formalities of his paperwork had not been completed but now a visa has been obtained he is set to link up with the club tomorrow.
