MILLWALL have followed through on their threat to recall Liam Feeney.
Bolton, who signed Feeney on loan at the end of September, were told they would lose the winger unless they exercised their pre-agreed right to buy him now.
Trotters manager Dougie Freedman refused to be pressured into a deal and consequently the Lions have triggered a 28-day recall clause.
Freedman said: "We're obviously disappointed to see Liam leave early. It's kind of backfired on us after how well he has played.
"It was supposed to be a three-month deal, but Millwall had a recall option. We have seen his quality and wish him well for the future."
Feeney will be in the Lions' squad to face Reading at the weekend and his return is a timely one with Lee Martin and Richard Chaplow struggling with injury.
