Several Norwich City loan exports were in action this weekend, including on-loan defender Rocky Bushiri, who received a red card against former club KV Oostende in the Belgian top-flight.

Bushiri cut short a loan spell with League One side Blackpool in order to return to his homeland and has started all three games since his arrival.

The 20-year-old was involved in an off the ball incident which led to his initial booking.

He then got beaten by Oostende striker Fashion Sakala before he hit the opener for the hosts.

Bushiri's second yellow came after he elbowed a defender when competing for a header in the latter stages of the game.
