Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray insists that new loan signing Josh McEachran will improve their side.

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has insisted that new signing Josh McEachran will bring "ball retention" to their side.

The 19-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Swansea City, has joined the Championship club until the end of the season.

"He'll bring ball retention - he's a very technical footballer. He's creative and an interesting one for us, because he's a young guy with I think a big future in the English game," he told the BBC.

McEachran has made 11 appearances for Chelsea.
