The 19-year-old has made 23 appearances since joining on loan from Chelsea in the summer.

There had been suggestions that Chelsea may invoke their right to recall McEachran, who suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury against Blackburn on Boxing Day.

But Mowbray told local radio: "I've had conversations with some of the Chelsea hierarchy and they're 99.9% sure he won't be recalled in January.

"Unless they have a catastrophe with injuries, I think Josh will be staying with us until the end of the season."

McEachran has made 22 appearances for Chelsea and played five games during a loan spell at Swansea City last season.

Middlesbrough sit fourth in the Championship and are two points off an automatic promotion place.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
