Norwich have completed the signing of former Barnsley midfielder Jacob Butterfield.

Butterfield: Completes Canaries switch

The 22-year-old, whose Oakwell contract was up at the end of June, has agreed a four-year contract with Chris Hughton's City.

Barnsley are entitled to compensation for their former captain, who has been out since December with a knee injury.

And a tribunal is likely to set the figure given the Tykes' reaction to Norwich's initial offer.

Boss Keith Hill told BBC Radio: "It seems ridiculous that they are going to try and get him for as little as they possibly can.

"The initial offer is an absolute joke. It's scandalous, disrespectful to Barnsley as well as the management teams and his team-mates."

Butterfield is Hughton's second signing and follows Steven Whittaker to Carrow Road.
