Teenage striker Jacob Hazel has returned to Chesterfield after a successful loan spell at Norwegian side SK Sprint-Jel0y.

Hazel scored 17 goals in 14 appearances as his temporary team narrowly missed out on their league title by a single point.

Upon his return to the Proact Stadium, the 19-year-old told the club's official website: "I absolutely loved it and would recommend it to any young player who isn't around the first team picture at the moment.

"You get a new life experience abroad and it's not just about the football, it's good to learn about the different cultures.

"The way things are done are a lot different too, it's good to get the experience in whilst I'm young because I'm not settled with a family so it gives me a chance to see the world."

Under the terms of the loan agreement between the two clubs, Hazel is not allowed to play for the Spireites until January but he is hoping to be involved once he is eligible.

He added: "I want to get my head down here now, work hard and try get in the manager's plans in January. (Chief executive) Chris Turner and the manager are looking to get something sorted but hopefully I can get back in and I can only try and get on and do my best.

"There is nothing better than playing and it's done my confidence a world of good. I want to get back in now and settle back in."
