Bryn Morris has returned to Middlesbrough from his loan spell with League One promotion challengers Walsall.
Hartlepool-born, 19, made just one appearances as a sub during his stay at the Banks's Stadium during which time there was a change in management with Sean O'Driscoll being replaced by John Whitney.
The Saddlers are currently third in the table, six points from an automatic promotion spot with two games in hand.
Earlier this season the former England U19 captain – who attended High Tunstall College of Science – made six appearances for Coventry City and four for York City, scoring one goal for the Minstermen.
He has made two league appearances for Boro, making his bow in an FA Cup tie against Hastings three years ago.
