Leon Clarke admits he has no future at Swindon as he returns to the club following the end of his successful loan spell at Chesterfield.
The 26-year-old completed a three-month loan spell with the Spireites at the weekend as Chesterfield lost 3-2 at Wycombe.
Clarke scored nine goals in 16 appearances in all competitions during his stay at the B2net Stadium and Spireites boss John Sheridan has expressed an interest in signing the former Queens Park Rangers man on a permanent basis.
Clarke linked up with Chesterfield at the end of August following a much-publicised bust-up with Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio and the striker admits he will be moving on again when the transfer window reopens in January.
The former Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday hit-man has refused to rule out a return to Chesterfield and he is waiting to see what his options are in the New Year.
"I've really enjoyed my time at Chesterfield and I would like to thank the manager for having faith in me at that time and also the players and everyone at Chesterfield who made me feel more than welcome while I was there," Clarke told skysports.com.
"I am just gutted the club didn't pick up more points during my stay and I wished I was leaving them in a better league position, but I am sure they can beat the drop.
"I don't know what the future holds. I've heard a few things and I won't write off going back to Chesterfield, but one thing that is clear is I have no future at Swindon.
"But that's football - players and managers come and go.
"I showed once again that I can score goals at this level [League One] and it's been great playing week in, week out so I'm just looking forward to the future and the New Year."
