Head coach David Wagner has confirmed that left back James Husband has now returned to Middlesbrough and the Riverside Stadium following the expiry of his loan spell at Huddersfield Town.

The 22 year old joined us originally on an emergency loan spell back on January 8, and with extensions agreed, he signed on for the maximum 93 days allowable under the regulations – but that has now come to an end following the weekend’s game against Hull City.

Having made a total of ten starting appearances in his time with us, with a further two appearances from the bench, he also picked up an assist for Jamie Paterson’s goal in his final match, and Wagner told the Official Site.

‘James performed well for us during his four months at the Club; he has really helped us at a time when we needed a second specialist left back in our group. His attributes fitted our style and identity on the pitch. He now has to go back to Middlesbrough as we cannot keep him for any longer and I`d like to wish him the best of luck. I must also say thank you to Aitor Karanka and Middlesbrough for allowing James to come and play for us.’

With Husband departing, Wagner confirmed that Jason Davidson would now more come into his plans for the remaining five matches of the season.

‘Jason Davidson will get the opportunity to play in our final games. He has also helped us in games during the last five months and now he can show how he can help us perform and get results. We have signed a second left back in Chris Löwe for next season and everyone knows I want competition with two players in every position, so this is a good time for Jason to show his talent.’
