Bristol City have recalled Kasey Palmer from his season-long loan spell at Swansea City.
Attacking midfielder Palmer, 24, joined Swansea for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign in October.
But the deal included a January recall clause which the injury-hit Robins have activated.
Ex-Chelsea youngster Palmer scored once in 12 Swansea appearances, but started only two games under Steve Cooper.
Palmer’s chances of getting further game-time at the Liberty Stadium in the second half of the season would not have been helped by the return to fitness of Morgan Gibbs-White, who made his first appearance since October in last weekend’s win over Watford.
