ASHLEY Eastham has returned to Blackpool but Notts County want him back.
The 21-year-old has spent a month on loan with the League One side, where he has impressed with a number of strong performances.
His deal came to an end on Tuesday night, after County’s 2-0 win at Colchester United.
The defender was all set to extend his deal, but with Blackpool appointing a new manager he will now return to Bloomfield Road.
Michael Appleton wants to see his whole squad before deciding who to make available for loan.
County manager Keith Curle said: “He’s gone back to find out exactly what his situation is.”
“He wants to know if he’s going to be in their plans.
“What he does not want to do now, having been here and played a few games, is go back there and get swallowed up.”
