OLIVER Risser has returned to Swindon Town after Stevenage turned down the option to extend his loan, the Advertiser understands.

The Namibian joined Boro in the summer and has since featured 13 times for the Lamex Stadium outfit, scoring one goal.

It is believed that Stevenage had the chance to keep Risser in Hertfordshire but preferred to see him go back to his parent club.
