Tate, 30, made 11 appearances during his two month spell at Elland Road, and leaves the club 11th in the Championship, five points outside the play-off places.

Manager Neil Warnock told the club’s official website: "We can't thank Alan enough for his help over the past month, and thanks also to Swansea for allowing him to come here. He has returned to Swansea now and we wish him all the best."

Tate has made 325 appearances for Swansea since joining the club in 2004 from Manchester United.
