Luke O’Neill has been recalled a day early from the end of his loan spell at York City.
The Clarets defender had been due to end his three-month spell with the Minsterman on January 4 after making 16 appearances since joining in October.
But the 22-year-old has returned to Turf Moor and will travel with the squad for their FA Cup third round tie at Southampton on Saturday.
O’Neill has made two appearances for the Clarets since joining from Mansfield Town in July 2012.
His last appearance came as a substitute in the final Championship game of the 2012/13 season at home to Ipswich Town.
