Maidstone United goalkeeper Grant Smith has been recalled by Lincoln City.
The shot-stopper joined the Stones on loan at the end of October, with the initial deal running until New Year’s Eve.
However, the League Two promotion-chasers have brought Smith back to Sincil Bank ahead of their Checkatrade Trophy clash against Accrington Stanley tonight.
Stones boss Harry Wheeler said: “I am really disappointed to lose Grant but the recall was one of the conditions at the time we signed him.
“Lincoln and ourselves were keen to extend the loan into 2019 and now that’s not an option, I have already secured a new keeper who will be announced later today.”
