SC Telstar announced that American midfielder Kyle Scott’s loan was terminated by mutual consent. According to technical director Piet Buter, “It did not become the desired cooperation for both parties.” The 21-year old has returned to Premier League super club Chelsea, where he has made a single senior appearance since being promoted to the first team in the summer of 2017.
Scott made 14 appearances with Telstar, scoring two goals, and was named to the league’s Team of the Week for Week 12. However, he last played for the IJmuiden-based club in November, and was held out of the last three Eerste Divisie matches.
He posted a seemingly somewhat somber send-off on his personal Instagram account:

- Thank you so much for my experience over in . I enjoyed my time. Also thanks to the fans for the support they gave coming every week...Sadly it’s a little short but i wish the best to you guys for the rest of the season & hope you can reach play offs !! Good luck for the future..
Scott is eligible to play for England, Ireland, and the United States, but has not made an international appearance since joining the USMNT U-20s in 2015. His current contract runs through June of 2019. While he thrived at the youth level, winning three FA Youth Cups and two UEFA Youth Leagues, he has understandably struggled to break through at Chelsea. It appeared that Scott was enjoying a successful loan spell in the Netherlands, but his time was cut short. Now he returns to England and will likely either go back out on loan or remain with the Chelsea reserves.
