The former Dutch international has trained with the squad all week at Spurs Lodge after being released by AK Alkmaar.
He has impressed during his short stay but, for the time being, will go back to Holland.
David explained: "I spoke to him today and he's going back to Holland. He's 30-years-old and he's got everything going for him - good height, good body strength, but I'm not prepared to gamble on any kind of permanent contract or agreement.
"I'm hoping he'll find a club very quickly, which he should do easily in Holland, and then we'll be able to assess him better in games.
"There is no movement on it though. He's had a week with us, he's trained well but we're not going to take any action at the moment."
Caretaker boss David Pleat says there will be no move for goalkeeper Oscar Moens for the time being.
