Jacob Butterfield joins Eagles on emergency loan

NORWICH City can confirm that midfielder Jacob  Butterfield has joined Championship side Crystal Palace on an emergency loan deal until February 19, 2013.

The 22-year-old joined the Canaries in the summer from Barnsley, and after fighting his way back to fitness from a long-term knee injury, has featured three times for City this season, in Capital One Cup victories over Doncaster Rovers and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as the January 5 FA Cup win over Peterborough United.

Ian Holloway’s promotion-chasing Eagles currently sit in fourth position in the npower Championship table, and Butterfield will be eligible to play in Saturday’s clash at home to Bolton Wanderers – managed by former Palace boss Dougie Freedman, and a team with whom Butterfield enjoyed an eight-game loan spell earlier this season.
