England Under-20 striker Ike Ugbo has returned to Chelsea after his season-long loan at Barnsley was cut short.

The 19-year-old made 18 appearances for the Championship side, but has not started a game since a 3-0 defeat at Reading on 28 November.

Ugbo's only goal for Barnsley came in a 3-0 victory over Sunderland in August.

Winger Harvey Barnes scored in the same game and his loan spell at Oakwell was cut short by parent club Leicester City earlier this week.
