Chelsea have recalled Rohan Ince from his loan spell at Yeovil Town.
Defensive midfielder Ince, 19, had moved to Huish Park in July in a six-month loan deal.
Despite some impressive performances for the Glovers in pre-season, Ince never fully recovered from an ankle injury suffered in pre-season and returned to Stamford Bridge earlier this week for treatment.
Ince made one start for Yeovil Town, in the 4-1 defeat at Leyton Orient, and three substitute appearances.
His departure follows Gary Johnson's capture of young Fulham defender Daniel Burn on a youth loan basis yesterday.
