Hayden Coulson has returned to Middlesbrough from his loan at St Mirren, as per BBC Sport.
The 20-year-old joined the Scottish Premier League side on a season-long loan in the summer but has gone back already. Birmingham City striker Nicolai Brock-Madsen has also seen his loan at St Mirren cut short prematurely, as reported by The72 yesterday.
Coulson, who is a left-back, was one of former Rotherham United boss Alan Stubbs’ first signings for St Mirren in July.
He was born in Gateshead and joined Middlesbrough in 2012. Coulson rose through the youth ranks at the Riverside and has been a key player for their youth sides over the past few years. He has yet to make an appearance for Boro in the league but has played 9 times for them in cup competitions.
Coulson was sent to St Mirren in the summer for some more senior football action and has since played 11 times for them in all competitions but will have to find first-team action elsewhere for the rest of the season.
He is highly-rated by Boro and has also represented England at U16, U17, U18 and U19 level so far in his career.
Middlesbrough currently have senior players Connor Ripley and Marvin Johnson out on loan at Accrington Stanley and Sheffield United. Youngsters such as Nathan McGinley at Forest Green Rovers, Joe Fryer at Carlisle United, Alex Pattison at Yeovil Town and George Miller at Bradford City are all out on loan stints for experience.
Tony Pulis will be hoping they can find a new temporary home for Hayden Coulson in January.
