Butcher returns to Spurs

Last updated : 05 January 2010 By Jaybee

Barnet's on loan centre back, Calum Butcher, who also played at right back for the Bees, has returned to White Hart Lane to re-join his parent club, Tottenham Hotspur. Butcher made his Bees' debut at home to Bournemouth last month and four appearances for the Bees when manager, ian Hendon had huge defensive injury problems, particularly with right backs, Joe Devera and Ryan O'Neill missing. With their return from injury and the imminent return of influential centre back, Gary Breen, Butcher's stay at Underhill has not been seen as necessary.

Meanwhile, Yannick Bolasie's loan comes to an end after Saturday's trip to Shrewsbury and Dean Sinclair's loan, from Charlton Athletic,  also expires after the Shrewsbury match but he is suspended following his sending off last monday in the home match against Northampton Town. Ian Hendon has to decide whether or not he wishes to extend the loans of Bolasie and Sinclair.

There is good news about midfield player, Nicky Deverdics, who has not fractured his leg, as was first feared. He just has a badly sprained ankle.
