Butterfield heading for loan exit

Norwich midfielder Jacob Butterfield could be set for a loan move back to former club Barnsley for a month.

Reports suggest Butterfield will be allowed back to Oakwell for a temporary spell in order to get some much-needed first-team action.

The 22-year-old left Barnsley for Norwich in the summer but has struggled to break into the team at Carrow Road following injury last season and has yet to make a senior start for the Canaries.

His lack of game-time at the minute is not benefiting anyone and it is thought City boss Chris Hughton is happy for him to leave for just a month with a switch back to the Tykes a distinct possibility.

Barnsley's priority in recruitment is thought to be a striker but reports in Yorkshire suggest they would be keen to land Butterfield to add creativity in midfield and will hope to speak to Norwich about a loan deal, intitially just for one month, in the next week.
