Savvy with a transfer roundup….

City midfielder Jacob Butterfield has joined Championship side Crystal Palace on a one-month loan deal.

Butterfield has only just returned from a loan spell at Bolton. He appeared eight times for the Lancashire side, but with a lot of those appearances from the subs bench. Earlier in the month, Chris Hughton remarked that he was disappointed at the amount of game-time Butterfield experienced throughout his Bolton loan. He will be hoping that Ian Holloway`s 4th placed Crystal Palace will offer the creative midfielder more chances to impress.

In other news, Midlands-based newspaper The Express and Star has reported that new Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Dean Saunders has had Simeon Jackson watched, with a view to making a permanent signing.

Apparently, Head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell watched the 25-year-old in action on Saturday in a goalless draw against Newcastle.

Saunders is thought to be lining up a bid in the region of £1m for Jackson, who many fans feel has not had enough of a chance to impress this season. However £1m would represent a reasonable return on the Canadian international who signed for £600k in August 2010.

  • AdMant ? Simeon is a great pro, works really hard, chases lost causes and has the goal scorers knack. He scored a number of crucial goals in our promotion from the Championship and we couldn?t have done it without him. He?s not the most technically gifted player, but makes up for it in other areas. Kind of a poor man?s Carlos Tevez (without the terrible attitude problem). He?s not really made it in the Prem (yet), but would be an asset to any Championship club.
