Attacker Wes Burns has joined up with parent club Bristol City while Aberdeen train in Dubai.
While most of the Dons squad flew out to the Middle East on Tuesday, the Welshman returned to south-west England.
The winger is only with the club for one week and will return to Pittodrie next week.
Burns joined up with Lee Johnson’s squad at the Robins’ request.
The 22-year-old has made 21 appearances for the Dons, 10 of which have been starts, and has scored one goal.
He scored on his debut with his first touch for the club, heading in against Ventspils in the Europa League qualifiers.
