The Sunderland star spent two months on loan at Blundell Park earlier in the season and Mariners boss Paul Groves was hoping to bring him to club again for another month.
The Welsh international has turned down the chance to return to Grimsby as he wants to establish himself in the Sunderland team.
"I had my bad injury and going to Grimsby was always going to be about me getting some match practice," Oster told the Grimsby Evening Telegraph.
"I've only played in a couple of games as a substitute since I've been back at Sunderland. But the team isn't doing too well and you'd think you'd get a chance. Hopefully mine will come in the next couple of games.
"I want to get back in the side and play. That's what I'm concentrating on now. Getting back playing first team football with Sunderland."
