And the Robins said they would be making no further comment on the circumstances of his departure as they wished him ‘the best of luck in the future’.

The 27-year-old rejoined the County Ground outfit in July, after having a loan spell there in October 2019, following his release from Mansfield.

He featured six times in total but did not play after November 9 because of injury and FA registration problems.

On his return in the summer, then Swindon boss Richie Wellens said he was prepared to offer the former Blues left-back his ‘very last chance’ in football.

However, his time at the League One side – now managed by John Sheridan – has been cut short, with Donohue featuring 11 times for the Robins this season.
