Socceroos defender Brad Smith is on his way back to Liverpool after being recalled from his loan spell at League One side Swindon Town.
While as of Monday night the Reds were yet to confirm the move, a statement on Swindon's website reported the 20-year-old would return to his parent club.
Smith joined the Robins in August and made ten appearances in total for the Wiltshire club, which is the home of fellow Socceroo Massimo Luongo.
Liverpool are preparing to welcome Spanish giants Real Madrid to Anfield on Thursday morning (AEDT) in UEFA Champions League action, following their weekend heroics against Queens Park Rangers.
While it's unlikely Smith would be thrust straight into the first team squad the four capped Socceroo will no doubt be looking to add to his debut Premier League outing against Chelsea last season.
The left back featured in the Socceroos' recent international against Qatar but has not been playing regularly in England's third tier as he sought to fully recover from a recent injury.
"It's one of those things. We can't do anything about it," Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire.
"He's a great lad and I'm sure he'll go on and have a fantastic career in the game.
“Hopefully, in the future, we'll have the opportunity to bring him back."
