The 21-year-old, who extended his contract with the Fratton Park club for another two years last month, returned to his parent club to train with them and sort out his future with Pompey.
Despite reports that his loan spell had prematurely come to an end, Pompey have announced that Vine is still contracted on loan to The U's until the season's end and will not be appearing for the South Coast outfit this term.
The young hit-man has recently been out of favour with the Essex-based club, with Phil Parkinson's side having drawn their last three matches.
Meanwhile, The U's are running the rule over four more trialists ahead at Layer Road.
Southampton's teenage defender Stephen Hunt joins Derby County trainees Lee Wilson and Fahrudin Kuduzovic, as well as Birmingham City youngster Duane Courtney in training with Parkinson's squad this week.
