Leeds United could need to act quickly to make sure they have suitable options to replace loanees in January.
Jack Clarke has returned and so could Eddie Nketiah. The 20-year-old could be recalled by Arsenal and be involved in the FA Cup clash against the Whites next week.
One possible replacement could be Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster who has been linked with a move numerous times, but they will be rivalled by Swansea City [Daily Star].
Swansea recently confirmed on their website that their current loan option in the final third, Sam Surridge has been recalled by Premier League side Bournemouth.
It was suggested by the Welsh side that a number of injuries picked up by the 21-year-old was the reason behind him returning to the Vitality Stadium early this month.
The Swans confirmed in the same update that Steve Cooper will jump into the January market as soon as possible to attempt to replace their loanee for the second half of the season.
Brewster could be the name to replace the Bournemouth forward, with the Mirror reported that Liverpool could snub talks with the Whites over recent concerns over their handling of Nkeitah this season.
So, with Surridge returning accompanying that report, Swansea clearly have the jump on Leeds to persuade the Premier League club to let Brewster make the switch.
Leeds may have to rely on loan moves to try and enhance their chances of Premier League football next season, as they look to continue their run at the top of the Championship this year.
