Norway international Martin Samuelsen has returned to West Ham United with immediate effect.
The 19-year-old winger joined Rovers on a season-long loan deal in August, but has found first team opportunities hard to come by at Ewood Park.
Having made just two starts and two substitute appearances in Rovers’ colours, Samuelsen has now returned to his parent club.
Rovers boss Owen Coyle said: “We had a good chat and Martin’s family felt that he wanted to be starting games and at this moment in time we couldn’t guarantee him that, so we agreed that it was in his best interest to return to West Ham. He’s a great lad and we wish him well.”
Last night, Samuelsen opened the scoring for West Ham in the 1-1 draw against Rovers in the Premier League 2 fixture at the Chigwell Construction Stadium.
