HITC Sport understands that the Championship promotion contenders won't allow winger to leave.

Albert Adomah is staying with Middlesbrough, until January at least, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Adomah put in a transfer request, as revealed by HITC Sport, at the end of August, just ahead of the transfer deadline day, following a falling out with manager Aitor Karanka.

Despite interest, no offers emerged for the Ghana international – as also revealed by HITC Sport - but he was still being linked with a possible loan move to one of their Championship rivals.

However, Boro have no intention of loaning him out – with that particular window set to open on Wednesday - and the club's hierarchy hope the episode is now 'put to bed' and that he will still have a long-term future with the club.

HITC Sport understands that Adomah returned to training with the rest of the Boro first-team squad on Tuesday and is working his way towards Saturday’s meeting with MK Dons.
