Middlesbrough recall youngster on loan at Caley Thistle
Middlesbrough forward Mitch Curry has returned to the club after his loan spell with Scottish side Inverness Caledonian Thistle was ended early.
The 20-year-old had agreed a six-month loan move to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the summer as he sought to gain first-team experience.
However, a combination of injuries and inconsistency plagued the player during his time in Scotland.
Curry had suffered a major injury early into the season when he damaged his ankle ligaments in a 1-0 Betfred Cup clash against Dundee, which caused him to be on the sidelines for three months. Since recovering from the injury, he has made minimal impact.
Inverness agreed to cut short the loan move that was due to elapse on January 25th as Boro are likely to find another club with better prospects for first-team action. It is understood that a handful of clubs from League Two are interested in his services.
Curry is seen as one for the future with the forward regarded highly within the Boro coaching ranks. His pace and goalscoring ability are key attributes that makes him highly rated within the club, and a loan move in January is seen as the next move for the striker.
