Barnsley Failed In Four Bids
Barnsley boss David Flitcroft has admitted he failed with four loan bids to bring Jacob Butterfield back to Oakwell.
Norwich were reluctant to let him return to his former club opting instead to send him to Bolton and Crystal Palace before a permanent transfer to Middlesbrough.
Norwich felt that a return to Barnsley would not have been a good move for Butterfield. Flitcroft however is adamant he would have got him back playing to the standards that earned him a move to the Premier League.
