Grimsby Town have allowed goalkeeper Tommy Forecast to return to Southampton after the loan signing of Josh Lillis.
Forecast had a further week remaining on his loan deal with the Mariners and had made four appearances since arriving at Blundell Park last month.
However, Grimsby boss Mike Newell brought in Josh Lillis on transfer deadline day and the on-loan Scunthorpe keeper is set to start against Port Vale on Saturday.
Newell told the Grimsby Evening Telegraph: "It was difficult for Tommy, coming into a side which was not performing, but unfortunately it didn't work out.
"Tommy said 'thanks very much for the opportunity' and wished us all the best. That was the right response, he's a terrific lad.
"Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't, and you have to hold your hands up and cut your losses."
