The Peruvian winger has returned to parent club Newcastle United after making 13 appearances for Rovers, in which he scored twice, after joining on transfer deadline day.

In a message on Instagram, Vilca wrote: “Thank you for all the support you have shown me since the day I arrived. I have the best memories. I wish you the best for the rest of the season.”

Vilca’s last game for Rovers came in the goalless draw with Lincoln City in November, during which he suffered a hamstring injury.
