Norwich City have re-signed Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Grounds on a two-month loan deal.
Grounds previously joined the Canaries on a three-month loan in September, but his stay was cut short after a few weeks.
He made five appearances for Norwich before being recalled by Boro, where he featured twice in the Premier League.
However, Boro boss Gareth Southgate has now allowed the 20-year-old, who can play at centre-half or left-back, to head back to Carrow Road.
Southgate's Norwich counterpart Glenn Roeder is delighted to have been able to add Grounds to his squad for a second time.
"I'm absolutely delighted to be able to tell our supporters that we've managed to get Jonathan Grounds back to Carrow Road for the next couple of months," Roeder told the club's official website.
"It's a position that we've known we've needed to fill, with Gary Doherty being the only fit, natural centre-back currently at the club.
"Jonathan did extremely well with us prior to Christmas and we know what we're getting - an exceptional player and an exceptional character."
