Brentford bring Northern Ireland international winger Stuart Dallas back from loan spell at Sky Bet League Two Northampton Town

Brentford winger Stuart Dallas has been recalled from a loan spell at Northampton Town.

The 22-year-old has been with the Sky Bet League Two side since the start of October.

He has played 12 games for The Cobblers and scored three goals.

Stuart has been called back to Brentford ahead of the Christmas fixtures.

He will train with The Bees today and be available for the game against Swindon Town at Griffin Park on Thursday, Boxing Day, December 26.

Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “Stuart has today been recalled from his loan spell with Northampton Town.

“The idea of the loan was to allow the player to continue his development through regular and consistent pitch time and we have been delighted by both the amount he has played and the level of his performances over the last few weeks.

“Stuart returns to the squad match fit and in good shape to play his part for the Christmas programme and the second half of the season.”

Northern Ireland international Stuart joined Brentford in the summer of 2012 from IFA Premiership side Crusaders.

He played ten games in all competitions in his first season at Griffin Park and has played five so far this term, setting up two goals in the Capital One Cup win over Dagenham and Redbridge in August.

Last month he signed a new contract to keep him at Brentford until the end of the 2015/16 season.

Stuart joined Crusaders in 2010 and spent two years with the Belfast club before joining The Bees.

His performances in his debut season helped Crusaders finish second in the IFA Premiership and earned him the Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year honour.

Stuart represented Northern Ireland at Under-23 level against Portugal before making his full international debut as a substitute against Wales in May 2011.

He has also represented Northern Ireland at Under-21 level.
