The club have stated in the Official statement regarding the loan that they have the option to recall him.

Jones has impressed at the club with his pace and movement have been earmarked as his greatest assets. This move will make him a better player which will have long term benefits for the club.

This would suggest to me that the duffy deal is done as i dont think RM would let Chris go without being assured he had enough cover for the 1st team.

It can only mean good things for the club and the player as he will only get better the more matches he plays!
