Stephen O'Halloran seems to have no luck with loans.
His last loan (to Southampton) saw him go unplayed and this time, at Leeds, he has returned without kicking a ball in anger after picking up a cruciate injury.
He was warming up ahead of a possible debut when he felt his knee 'pop'.
Leeds boss Gary McAllister said: 'Stephen had a scan on Monday afternoon and we're waiting on the results now. We've informed Aston Villa and we have our fingers crossed that's it not too bad. He said he felt something pop behind his knee. It was disappointing for him, he'd been in a couple of days and was looking forward to playing.'
The situation has now been updated and the Irish international has returned to Aston Villa after the scan showed a cruciate injury.
Stephen told LUTV: 'Unfortunately, it's a bad one. It's my cruciate ligaments. I haven't got the full details as yet, so we'll wait and see what happens over the next few weeks. Unfortunately, it means it's loan over for me.'
Adding, 'I was looking forward to playing here, but I'm not going to be all negative about things, you never know what might happen in the future. I'd like to thank everyone here, particularly the physios.'
United boss Gary McAllister told the official site: 'It's disappointing for Stephen. He was buzzing when he came here and was really looking forward to playing. We've all got our fingers crossed for him here that he makes a speedy recovery and I think I can speak on behalf of everyone when I wish him all the best from Leeds United.'
