Fulham have ended Neil Etheridge's loan spell at Bristol Rovers early and the goalkeeper is now set to return to Craven Cottage.
Etheridge had been set to remain with the League Two outfit until January, but the Cottagers have decided to recall the 22-year-old and he will return to Craven Cottage after he returns from international duty with the Philippines.
The shot-stopper managed to force his way into the Pirates starting XI and kept one clean sheet in 12 games for the League Two strugglers.
It is unclear as to why Fulham boss Martin Jol has decided to cut short Etheridge's loan spell, as there have been no reports of injuries to either Mark Schwarzer or number two David Stockdale.
The loan window closes on Thursday and Jol has previously admitted he is keen to send Stockdale out on loan in order to give him some time on the pitch, so a deal for Stockdale to join a Championship side before the deadline passes may be a possibility - with Fulham then needing Etheridge as a number two.
