Kacaniklic, 21, joined Burnley on a short-term deal on March 1 and has made six starts but will now return to Fulham as an injury crisis mounts for Martin Jol.

The news comes at a bad time for Burnley, who have found themselves dragged into a relegation battle and face champions-elect Cardiff City at the weekend before then taking on Wolverhampton Wanders in what could prove to be a huge six-pointer on the penultimate weekend of the season.

Sweden international Kacaniklic will now be available for Fulham's Premier League fixture with Arsenal on Saturday.

The same fate befell Kacaniklic in the run-in last season when injuries forced his recall from a temporary stint at Watford.
