Newcastle United have recalled striker Ivan Toney from his loan spell at Oakwell.
"It's unfortunate with the situation that's developed but Newcastle have to protect themselves over the Christmas period," said Head Coach Lee Johnson.
"I had a nice call from Paul Simpson (Newcastle United Assistant Head Coach) explaining the situation which I appreciate.
"It's the same with any loan and unfortunate for ourselves but Ivan is their player.
"He's done really well and helped himself to a couple of goals. I'd like to place on record our thanks to both Newcastle United and Ivan."
The striker made eight appearances for the Reds, scoring two goals - as well as helping Lee Johnson's side into the Area Final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with a well-taken penalty at Wigan Athletic.
