Norwich defender Leon Barnett has returned to Carrow Road from his loan spell with newly promoted Cardiff.

Barnett initially signed for the Bluebirds on a 28-day loan in March, which was later extended to the end of this season.

But with Michael Turner suffering a groin injury last weekend, Norwich boss Chris Hughton has decided to recall Barnett before the end of the season.

The centre-back made eight appearances as Cardiff clinched promotion to the top flight for next season, and also claimed the Championship title.
