Oxford United chief executive Mark Ashton says the club are still keen to bring winger Jordan Graham back on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Graham, 20, was recalled by his parent club last month as injury cover shortly after extending his Oxford loan.
The former Aston Villa trainee made five appearances for the U's after initially joining for a month.
"Unfortunately he won't be coming back to us imminently, but we'll keep in contact," Ashton told BBC Radio Oxford.
"We would like to bring him back," Ashton added. "We'll have to wait and see if the dialogue changes and we've a good relationship with Wolves' technical director Kevin Thirlwell.
"But, just like we have to manage our squad, they have to manage theirs. There's certainly a desire from the boy to come back to us at some point.
"He enjoyed his time here and made a difference."
