Danny Butterfield looks set to leave St Mary’s on loan, with a number of Championship clubs reportedly chasing the player. Sky Sports reports.

Butterfield has struggled to force his way into Nigel Adkins’ plans this season, slipping below Nathaniel Clyne in the full-back pecking order.

The former Crystal Palace defender had signed a new contract at St Mary’s in February, but Nigel Adkins may feel it is right to let the player leave on a temporary basis in search of regular first-team football.

The 32-year-old’s only appearance so far this campaign came in the Capital One Cup win over Stevenage and he has struggled to hold down a first-team place since injuries limited his opportunities last season.

Birmingham City and Sheffield Wednesday are said to be the two frontrunners in securing a potential deal for Butterfield, with the Blues seeking cover for injured duo, Stephen Carr and Paul Caddis, while Dave Jones is are also keen to improve Wednesday’s defensive options.
