Barnsley’s Jacob Butterfield reported to have signed for Norwich City

Barnsley midfielder Jacob Butterfield is reported to have signed for Norwich City.

The Canaries today declined to comment on a Barnsley Chronicle report that the 22-year-old had put pen to paper on a deal at Carrow Road.

The Championship club are said to have rejected City's bid for Butterfield, who is out of contract, and the deal is now likely to go to tribunal as the player is under 24.

Butterfield said last week he would only leave Barnsley for a club in the top flight.

He joined Barnsley at 16 and made exactly 100 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals. He was made captain by manager Keith Hill last season and impressed before injuring his knee against Leeds in December, after which he was ruled out for the rest of the season.
