Norwich City have recalled defender Leon Barnett from his loan spell at Cardiff City.

Barnett initially signed for Cardiff on a 28-day loan in a deal that was later extended to the end of this season.

Michael Turner suffered a groin injury in the Canaries' 2-1 win over Reading at the weekend which may have influenced Norwich boss Chris Hughton's decision to recall Barnett before the end of the season.

The centre-back made eight appearances as Cardiff City clinched promotion and the Championship title.
