Lee Sawyer has quit his loan spell at Southend more than two months early and returned to Chelsea.[LNB] The 20-year-old midfielder was axed from the Shrimpers squad which travelled to Carlisle on Saturday following a breach of club discipline.[LNB] A club statement read: "Southend United have accepted Lee Sawyer's request to return early to Chelsea from his loan deal."[LNB] Sawyer's spell was supposed to run until January.[LNB] The Shrimpers have received some good news, however, after midfielder Anthony Grant signed a two-and-a-half year extension to his contract to tie him to Roots Hall until 2012.[LNB] "It's good to have got it all out of the way early as we have been talking for a little while now and I can just concentrate on my football now," said the 22-year-old ex-Chelsea man.
