I'll prove my worth - Butterfield
Jacob Butterfield is relishing the opportunity to prove he is a Premier League quality player following his recent move from Barnsley.
The 22-year-old midfielder penned a four-year contract at Carrow Road earlier this week to become boss Chris Hughton's second summer signing following his arrival from Birmingham City as Paul Lambert's successor. Butterfield has seen several starlets thrive at Norwich last season and he is now looking to make the step-up for the Canaries when the new campaign gets underway in August having recovered from a long-term knee injury. "Norwich play good football and after a few conversations with the new gaffer, it just felt right and felt like a good step to make in my career at this stage," he told the Evening News. "The way the gaffer sees me fitting into this team - and they are good footballers that are already here - I just think I'll fit in well so it seemed like the right decision to make. "I know a few of the lads. I know Ryan Bennett from England Under-21s and Korey Smith came on loan to Barnsley and most of the lads have recently been in the Championship, so I've played against a lot of them. They're all good players and I'll be looking forward to playing with them this time. "There are good footballers here, good young players who have come from a similar background, I suppose. "I've always felt I was good enough to play in the Premier League and I'm just delighted it's all been sorted now. I'm just really looking forward to getting on the pitch and showing everyone what I can do next season."
