DEAN Parrett has been sent back to Tottenham Hotspur, Swindon Town boss Kevin MacDonald has confirmed.

The midfielder only arrived at the County Ground on March 28 on a loan deal until the end of the season but has returned to north London after just three appearances in the red of the Robins.

MacDonald was not willing to explain the reasons behind Parrett’s departure, but the decision is not believed to be injury-related.

When questioned on the subject by the media at his press conference ahead of the weekend clash with Sheffield United, MacDonald said: “That’s something between myself and Dean and Tottenham Hotspur and I don’t wish to elaborate on that.”
