MK Dons loanees Dale Jennings and Jason Banton have both been recalled by their respective parent clubs, manager Karl Robinson has revealed.
Former Bayern Munich man Jennings joined the Dons from Barnsley in November, whilst Crystal Palace winger Banton has been with the club since July.
Robinson had been hoping to keep Jennings in particular, but he will now have to plan for the future without the duo.
"He’s disappointed because he wanted to stay, but Barnsley, under a new manager, want to have a look at him in January.
“He’s a special young talent and a wonderful player but we’re under the impression they want to assess him again.
“Jason (Banton) has showed flashes of why we brought him in. I had a good chat with him yesterday and he understands the situation and I think he knows where he’s got to improve.”
Robinson also confirmed that he is set to speak to Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert about the possibility of extending Samir Carruthers' loan deal in the coming days, but the Dons boss is less optimistic about keeping West Ham defender Jordan Spence.
