Young Norwich City defender Adel Gafaiti has returned to Norfolk after his loan deal with Oldham Athletic ended.

The 19-year-old joined Oldham in March but only made one substitute appearance. His loan deal expired on Monday and has not been extended by Latics boss Lee Johnson.

“Adel showed a good attitude while with us and is a good player,” Johnson told the League One club’s official website. “It’s a shame he did not get more game time but for the fantastic form of Adam Lockwood and James Wilson.”

Gafaiti, an Algeria Under-20 international who joined City when he was released by Scottish club Rangers, has continued to play for City’s Under-21 side while on loan.

He started for City’s Under-21s in their 1-0 win at Wolves last night.
