Ghana youth midfielder David Atanga has reverted to his parent club Red Bull Salzburg after terminating his loan deal with German Bundesliga II side FC Heidenheim.
Atanga could not make the impact he had targeted after scoring 10 goals in 23 appearances for Liefering in the Austrian second-tier the previous season.
Frequent injuries looks to have consigned the youngster to the bench as he could only manage four league appearances on one German Cup game.
He will be looking to sign for a new club during the January transfer window.
Atanga was a member of Ghana's squad at the 2015 U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
