Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran joins Middlesbrough on season's loan
Tuesday 21 August 2012
Chelsea's England U-21 midfielder Josh McEachran will spend this Championship campaign with Middlesbrough after the clubs agreed a season-long loan deal.
McEachran,19, could make his Boro debut in tonight's league match against Burnley at the Riverside Stadium. He made just five appearances, only two of them starts, in a loan spell at Swansea last spring and Chelsea want him to get much more game time than that.
The teenager is rated one of England's brightest young midfield talents, but he has struggled to break into Chelsea's star-studded line-up. The manager Robert Di Matteo last week admitted that McEachran's career had "somehow stalled a little bit".
