Southampton have recalled Sam Gallagher from his season-long loan at MK Dons.

The 20-year-old forward joined the Sky Bet Championship team in the summer but has found playing time restricted.

Nine of Gallagher's 15 appearances for the Dons came off the bench and Southampton have brought an early end to the loan.

"Sam's attitude has been spot on and he's always given everything," MK Dons boss Karl Robinson said. "It's unfortunate that things haven't worked out.

"He's found opportunities limited and it's vital, at his age, that he is playing games on a regular basis and we never want to stand in the way of a young player doing that."

Southampton recalled Jack Stephens from Middlesbrough earlier in the week after he too found first-team chances at a premium.
