Reds gets £1.3m for Butterfield, and squad numbers announced.

Barnsley have claimed a major victory over the sale of former captain Jacob Butterfield to Norwich City after the Canaries agreed to pay £1.3m for the 22 year old.

It represents a major success for Keith Hill and the club as Butterfield’s contract had expired and the fee- eligible as the former Manchester United trainee is under 24- was set to be decided by a tribunal, which would likely have seen the club net a substantially lesser fee.

A statement on the club’s official website read:

“Barnsley Football Club have reached an agreement with Norwich City for the transfer fee of Jacob Butterfield.

The club are now happy to have accepted a vastly improved offer from Norwich, subsequently avoiding a tribunal as the midfielder is under the age of 24.”

Meanwhile only one of Hill’s summer recruits has been handed a single digit squad number for the 2012-2013 season.  Defender Lee Collins, who finished last season on loan at Oakwell will wear Number 5 but the manager’s other four signings to date are further down the order. Goalkeeper Ben Alnwick will don the number 12 shirt Striker Mido will wear number 18, Jacob Mellis has 21 and Kelvin Etuhu has 23.

Full Squad List:

1 – Luke Steele 

2 – Bobby Hassell  3 – Scott Golbourne  4 – Rob Edwards  5 – Lee Collins  6 – Stephen Foster  7 – Stephen Dawson  8 – Jim O’Brien  9 – Craig Davies  10 – Matt Done  11 – David Perkins  12 – Ben Alnwick  13 – Chris Dagnall  14 – Scott Wiseman  15 – Jimmy McNulty  16 -  17 – Paul Digby  18 – Mido 

19 -  20 -  21- Jacob Mellis  22 -  23 – Kelvin Etuhu  24 – Reuben Noble-Lazarus  25 -  26 -  27 -  28 -  29 -  30 -  31 – Jordan Clark  32 – Danny Rose  33 -  34 – John Stones
