MARC BOLA has left Middlesbrough to re-join his former club, Blackpool, on loan to the end of the season.

Bola moved to the Riverside in the summer, but things have not gone to plan for the left-back during his time in the North-East.

He has made eight appearances for Boro, but was told to seek an alternative option for the second half of the campaign by head coach Jonathan Woodgate earlier this month.

He returns to Bloomfield Road to link up with manager Simon Grayson having been Blackpool's Player of the Year last season.
