Talks set to decide ace's future
On loan midfielder Josh McEachran is set for talks with parent club Chelsea next month to outline his wishes to remain at Middlesbrough for the second-half of their campaign.
The original terms of McEachran's season-long loan at the Riverside included a January 'break clause' allowing either party to terminate the existing agreement between the two clubs.
'Hopefully, I'll be staying beyond January and carrying on with Middlesbrough for the rest of the season," McEachran told the Northern Echo. "That's definitely my aim.
"I'm not sure exactly what's going to happen yet because it's still to be completely decided," he continued. "I expect that to happen in
January, but I want to stay here and I'll be making sure the people down at Chelsea know that. Hopefully, they'll let that happen."
Boro manager Tony Mowbray is known to desperately want to retain the services of the talented England Under-21 international who has already played a crucial part in their ongoing promotion challenge.
