Barnsley have come to an agreement with Norwich over a transfer fee for Jacob Butterfield, avoiding the prospect of a tribunal.

The out-of-contract midfielder, 22, signed a four-year deal with the Canaries on July 3 although a fee - required as Butterfield is under the age of 24 and had been offered fresh terms - could not be settled between the two clubs, making a tribunal almost inevitable.

Barnsley rejected an initial offer as derisory and furious manager Keith Hill accused the Barclays Premier League outfit of attempting to get their man on the cheap. But a statement from the Tykes on Friday morning revealed Norwich have upped their offer and common ground had been found.
