Jordan Stewart’s Swindon Town career appears to be over after manager Mark Cooper conceded the 20-year-old may have played his last game for the club.
The versatile forward – who only arrived at the County Ground from Glentoran during the summer – has failed to settle and has returned home to Northern Ireland.
“Jordan Stewart has gone back home. He’s homesick,” Cooper said following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Blackpool.
“He came back for a couple of days and he’s gone back again, so I think that will be the end of it now.
“His contract won’t get ripped up because we paid money for him, so we have to hold his registration and wait for someone to buy him.
“It is frustrating but if his head isn’t right then there’s not a lot we can do about it.”
Stewart joined the Robins at the end of August for a fee in the region of £55,000 plus add-ons.
The Northern Ireland U21 international failed to make his Town debut and was an unused substitute in games against Barnsley and Burton last month.
