League Two side Crawley Town will take young Norwich City striker Mason Bloomfield on a season-long loan.
The 22-year-old joined the Canaries from Dagenham & Redbridge last summer, having scored three goals in 26 games in the National League.
He went almost straight out on loan but suffered a frustrating campaign, scoring once in seven matches for Scottish Premiership side Hamilton, remaining mostly on the fringes with the Accies.
That prompted a change in January and Bloomfield returned to the top tier of non-league with promotion hopefuls AFC Fylde, impressing on his debut before disaster struck and he broke his wrist - ending his season.
The striker, who was announced as an addition to the U23 squad initially, is believed to be under contract at City until the end of the season.
