Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has revealed he is willing to listen to offers for Lukas Jutkiewicz in the summer.

Jutkiewicz will spend the rest of the season on loan at Bolton, where he has scored five goals in 11 appearances, and has already expressed a desire to remain at the Reebok Stadium beyond the term of his deal.

The 24-year-old has 12 months remaining on his Boro contract and although Karanka has been impressed with his recent performances, the former Real Madrid assistant coach says the player's future will be discussed at the end of the season.

"When the season is finished, we will sit down with Lukas and talk about the future," Karanka told The Northern Echo. "I don't know what will happen with him - it is something for the future rather than now.

"I am very happy with the way he has been playing. When we sat down together to discuss what was going to happen earlier in the season, we came up with the solution of him going to Bolton on loan because we all wanted the same thing.

"It was very important for him to go somewhere and score goals so he could get more confidence. I am pleased that has happened, and I know more now than I knew at the beginning. I am happy, Lukas is happy and Bolton are happy. We will leave it until the summer."
