Josh McEachran: Set to stay at Boro

Manager Tony Mowbray is confident of keeping midfielder Josh McEachran at the Riverside Stadium for the rest of the season.

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.
