Fulham striker Timmy Abraham has had his loan spell at Plymouth Argyle ended a week early.

The 19-year-old has not played for the Pilgrims since November 10 and would not have featured in the squad over Christmas and New Year.

So the decision has been taken to allow him to return to London to be with his family for the festive period.

Defender Jerome Opoku is also on loan to Argyle from Fulham but his deal does not expire until the end of January.

Argyle manager Ryan Lowe said: “Timmy’s is actually up on the second (of January) so we have told him he can go back.

“He has been missing out on the squad but he has been fantastic with his attitude.

“We didn’t want him to be disappointed over the Christmas period, away from his family, so he will be going back to Fulham.

“We thank Timmy for everything that he gave us in the few games that he played.

“It’s not fair on the kid travelling him up and down the country over the Christmas period when he could be the spare man.”

Abraham signed for Argyle on transfer deadline day in October but failed to make much of an impact.

He made four appearances, including two starts, and did not get any goals, with his last game coming in a 3-1 EFL Trophy defeat of Newport County.

Opoku signed for Argyle towards the end of September and has gone on to make a total of 11 starts and four substitute appearances.

He scored a late equaliser when the Pilgrims drew 2-2 with Portsmouth in a Sky-televised League One fixture at Home Park last month.

Lowe said: “Jerome’s loan is until the 28th, I think I’m right, so he has got another month with us.

“We will see where he’s at, where Fulham are at, and where we are at as well.”

Lowe admitted Argyle would not do many deals during the forthcoming January transfer window.
