Norwich City midfielder joins Macclesfield Town

Norwich City midfielder Matt Ball has joined League Two club Macclesfield Town in a one-month loan deal, it has been confirmed.

Ball, who will be 19 later this month, has been a regular for City Reserves this season, scoring eight goals in 14 appearances, including four in two games against Wolves recently.

A Northern Ireland Under-19 international, he has been with the Canaries since the age of 12 and signed a one-year professional contract last May.

He was on the bench for City's 2-1 Championship home defeat by Crystal Palace in October 2010 but has yet to make his senior debut.
