The Gazette Live understands Butterfield is set to hold talks with Huddersfield Town.

Butterfield is expected to hold talks with the Terriers today and the Gazette understands Boro value the playmaker at around £1m but the potential move is not part of a swap deal.

Clayton’s move to Boro was due to be completed yesterday after a fee and personal terms were agreed. The midfielder was due at the club’s training ground for a medical yesterday and the deal was expected to be finalised.

But the move was put on hold at the 11th hour as Town wanted to find a replacements before agreeing to the switch.

The Gazette understands Huddersfield refused Clayton permission to travel to Teeside and instead called him to a team meeting before their friendly against Newcastle United on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old did not play in the match because of a slight calf strain.

Then Huddersfield requested to speak to Butterfield which is said to have complicated matters even more.

The Gazette believes Butterfield may welcome a fresh start after a frustrating time on Teeside. He has played 32 times, scoring three goals, since signing from Norwich in September last year for a deal believed to be worth £600,000.
