Athletic Bilbao

The Spanish international believes that his former team-mate will thrive at Riverside.

Middlesbrough made a move to sign Kike Sola this week from Athletic Bilbao on loan until the end of the season.The former Osasuna and Levadiakos striker played once for the Spanish Under-21 side in 2008 but have never truly lived up to his potential since then.

Now, at 29-years-old, he will be hoping to shine once again.

Boro are currently flying high at the top of the Championship and will hope that Sola helps them in their pursuit of promotion to the top-flight.

One man who is clearly happy to see Sola get his move is Mikel San Jose.

The Athletic Bilbao midfielder is a Spanish international and is considered as one of the best talents in La Liga.

The 26-year-old, who was on the books at Liverpool as a youngster, sent out this tweet after Sola made the move:
