Josh McEachran: Set to stay at Boro

Josh McEachran: Set to stay at Boro

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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
