Middlesbrough's James Morrison will be back much soon that expected.
Middlesbrough have been boosted by the news that James Morrison will be back within the next few weeks.
Boro had feared that the 19-year-old would miss the rest of the season with a hip problem which has dogged him over the last few weeks and sent him to see a specialist.
However, Steve McClaren has confirmed that the young midfielder should be back early next month.
"It's good news. The specialist says that James does not need a long lay-off," he said.
McClaren also revealed that the club were looking to loan long-term injury victim Malcolm Christie to a Scandinavian club over the summer.
"We want to see him playing and training continuously and that's why we are looking for a Scandinavian club for him," he said.
