Harry Chapman poised for Blackburn return as Middlesbrough prepare to let midfielder leave on loan
- Blackburn are hoping to tie up a deal for Harry Chapman from Middlesbrough
- The England Under-20 international also spent last season on loan at Ewood Park
- He missed the second half of last season with a hamstring problem
Middlesbrough midfielder Harry Chapman is poised to leave on loan with Blackburn Rovers leading the chase.
The England Under-20 World Cup winner was the subject of a failed bid from Rovers prior to the August 9 transfer deadline but Tony Mowbray remains keen on striking a deal with an initial loan.
Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis is prepared to let Chapman go providing he can land his own transfer targets with Millwall’s George Saville his prime objective.

Chapman spent part of last season on loan at Ewood Park helping them gain promotion from League One and is keen to reunite with Mowbray.
He scored once in 12 appearances for Rovers, adding three assists as he helped them reach the Championship.
However, his season was cut short by a hamstring injury, which he sustained in November before aggravating it on his comeback to action in an Under-23s clash.
Mowbray is also hoping to complete the signing of Nottingham Forest forward Ben Brereton this week in a deal that could be worth up to £7million.
