Rocky Bushiri’s loan spell at Blackpool has been cut short, with Norwich City recalling the Belgian defender.

Bushiri was expected to spend the entirety of the season at Bloomfield Road, but a lack of playing time has led to City cutting short his stint with the Seasiders.

The 20 year-old is set to return to his native country on another temporary deal in order to continue his development with regular minutes.

The centre-back made seven appearances for Blackpool, scoring once in an EFL Trophy clash against Wolves U23s. Bushiri found himself confined to the bench as he struggled to work his way into boss Simon Grayson's thoughts.

Grayson confirmed Bushiri's loan stint was over following their New Year's Day defeat to Rotherham United: "Rocky Bushiri has been recalled back to Norwich and will go to Belgium on loan. We thank him for the bits he did for us, it didn't quite work out that one," he told the Blackpool Gazette.
