On-loan goalkeeper Ross Turnbull has ended his spell at Cardiff City and returned to Middlesbrough.
Ross Turnbull has returned to Middlesbrough
Turnbull, 22, was at the Bluebirds on a season-long loan, but is wanted back at the Riverside to cover for number two Brad Jones who has strained a thigh.
That left Boro desperately short of options for Mark Schwarzer with only 17-year-old Jason Steele as cover.
Turnbull was out of favour with City boss Dave Jones and had lost his place in the Cardiff team to Michael Oakes.
