Norwich City’s Jacob Butterfield joins Crystal Palace on loan
12:21 16 January 2013
Norwich City’s Jacob Butterfield has joined Championship side Crystal Palace on an emergency loan deal until February 19.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who signed as a free agent in the summer after leaving Barnsley, spent two months on loan at Championship outfit Bolton Wanderers during the end of last year - making eight appearances for the Trotters before returning to Carrow Road.
Butterfield played the final 18 minutes of City’s 3-0 FA Cup win at Peterborough on January 5, only his third competitive outing in yellow. And now he will look to get games elsewhere over the coming weeks of the campaign.
Ian Holloway’s Palace side are fourth in the Championship, and Butterfield will be eligible to play in Saturday’s clash at home to Bolton Wanderers.
