Tyreece John-Jules joined Blackpool on a season-long loan in the summer but has returned to Arsenal early.
The young forward has fallen down the pecking order at Bloomfield Road after failing to score in the 12 appearances he has made for the Seasiders.
With the likes of Shayne Lavery, Gary Madine and Jerry Yates to compete with, John-Jules hasn’t made an appearance for Neil Critchley’s side since mid-October.
The 20-year-old may have to drop back down to League One in order to get regular minutes for the remainder of the season.
Here are the best of today’s transfer rumours...
