Chris Eagles will return to Manchester United in January from a loan spell at NEC Nijmegen.
The midfielder has spent the last four months in Holland following his deadline day switch.
However, Eagles has failed to find regular football at De Goffert, with the majority of his 11 league appearances coming as a substitute.
Eagles spent parts of last season with Sheffield Wednesday and Watford but opted for Holland after fellow United youngster David Jones' successful spell.
But the 20-year-old has taken up the option of returning to Old Trafford next month after struggling for first-team action.
