Striker Viktor Gyokeres has been recalled from his loan spell at Swansea City by parent club Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Sweden international made 12 appearances for the Swans in total.
He scored his only goal for the club in last weekend’s FA Cup win at Stevenage.
"Brighton wanted to recall him, that happened a couple of days ago and he has said his goodbyes," said head coach Steve Cooper.
"I have to say he is a really good guy, and there is a good player in there.
"I think it was a loan that came a bit later than what everyone wanted. He had some bad luck picking up Covid on international duty too.
"He was happy here, but he wanted to play more football and we wish him well."
