Norwich City left-back James Husband has joined Joey Barton's Fleetwood Town on loan until January.

The 24-year-old started the Canaries' first game of the season at Birmingham City, but has been overlooked ever since.

Now, with first choice left-back Jamal Lewis having returned to fitness, Norwich have given him the all clear to see out the rest of 2018 at the League One side.

“We are really pleased to have James with us at Fleetwood Town," Fleetwood boss Joey Barton said.

“He will add more competition at left-back, and brings both Championship level experience to our team. He is fit and ready to go, and I can’t wait to see him in action for us.”
