WANDERERS have convinced Norwich City to make a late U-turn and leave Jacob Butterfield on loan at the Reebok.

The midfielder was an unused substitute as the Whites drew 2-2 at Huddersfield on Saturday in what was scheduled to be the final game of his initial one-month spell before he returned to the Premier League.

Canaries boss Chris Hughton had been planning to put him into the midweek Capital One Cup game against Aston Villa but after talks on Saturday night, has accepted Dougie Freedman's request to let him stay at the Reebok until January.

Butterfield has started twice and made two substitute appearances since becoming Freedman's first signing in November.

After a slow start against his former club Barnsley, he was one of Wanderers' star performers in the 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

The England Under-21 international has yet to feature in a league game for Norwich since his summer move from Oakwell.
