Left back James Husband has returned to parent club Middlesbrough following the conclusion of his loan spell with Championship rivals Huddersfield Town.
The 22-year-old spent featured 12 times, including ten starts, for David Wagner’s side over two separate spells since originally joining in January.
One of Husband’s final acts for the Terriers was supplying a cross for Jamie Paterson’s in the weekend draw with Hull City at the John Smith’s Stadium. Former Borussia Dortmund coach Wagner has been very complimentary about the full back’s involvement with the club,
“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.”
“But he’s (Husband) now back with us and is one of us. (He’s training) and is one more option for the team, and in this moment we need everyone with us.
“When you have a lot of games, sometimes you can have 90 minutes in your legs but now 90 minutes in your head is difficult.
“So with (Husband) we have another option. It’s good as he’s a good lad and a very good professional.”
There is a chance that Husband could be involved in Karanka’s squad when Middlesbrough play Reading on Tuesday night.
