Skysports.com understands Leon Clarke has cancelled his loan spell at Preston for personal reasons.
Clarke joined the Championship strugglers on loan from Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season during the January transfer window.
The 26-year-old made six appearances for North End, scoring one goal in the draw with Watford.
However, Clarke has not featured since the defeat to Burnley at the end of February and he has now cut short his loan stint to return to Loftus Road.
Clarke will be unable to play for Rangers upon his return under the terms of his loan deal, but he will continue to train with Neil Warnock's Premier League hopefuls.
