Norwich City striker Oli Johnson returns to his parent club tomorrow, having completed his 93 day loan spell at Huish Park. The 24 year old had a somewhat disappointing second loan spell with Yeovil Town this time around, making just nine appearances and failing to find the net.
Glovers boss Terry Skiverton confirmed prior to today's match that the Wakefield-born player would be returning to Carrow Road tomorrow, with him having been left out of today's squad against Charlton Athletic. Oli has not played in a League One match since October 29th, generally becoming the "sixth loan" in the club's side and only turning out in FA Cup matches.
He will be eligible to be loaned or purchased by another club once the January transfer window opens. However, it will not be possible for the Glovers to take out a further 93 day 'emergency' loan spell this season for him - only a standard loan during the window for a half season period would be an option. However, given his lack of impact at Huish Park this time round, that may be a bit too much of a gamble.
