Swansea are ready to allow midfielder Shaun MacDonald to return to League One side Yeovil in January.
The Wales Under-21 international made 13 appearances for the Glovers during a three-month loan spell but is now back in Wales after the deal expired.
But Swans chairman Huw Jenkins is happy for the 21-year-old to return to Huish Park next month and insists it would not spell the end of his time with Swansea.
"I've spoken to Shaun and I know that his ultimate aim is to get back into our squad and to get back playing for our club," Jenkins told the South Wales Evening Post.
"He is going to have a chat with Paulo (Sousa) and of course, as always, we have to take the player's feelings into account.
"But if he goes back to Yeovil on loan for the rest of the season, that definitely does not mean that he will not be coming back to Swansea."
