Striker James Vaughan has returned to Everton after a three-month loan spell with English Championship side Crystal Palace. The 22-year-old scored five goals in 14 appearances for the Eagles, including a first senior hat-trick in a victory over Portsmouth in September.
Palace boss George Burley said: "James Vaughan is going to be badly missed. We were trying to bring in a striker before the deadline last month but we weren't able to do that.
"There is a chance we could bring him back in January but that's between the clubs and James himself. I've had a chat with him."
