Boss Chris Hughton, who was sacked by the Canaries a year ago this weekend, signed the midfielder on loan from Middlesbrough until the end of the season.
Hughton can also welcome back central defender Lewis Dunk, who has missed the last two games through suspension for collecting 10 yellow cards this term.
Sam Baldock, Andrew Crofts (both knee), Kemy Agustien (thigh) and Solly March (calf) remain on the sidelines.
Norwich will include Ryan Bennett for their first trip to the Amex Stadium.
The defender has been out since January with a hamstring injury but is now fully fit, although ex-Brighton winger Elliott Bennett will not face his former club because of his own hamstring issue.
Lewis Grabban is back in light training after ankle surgery in March and could return before the end of the month.
The striker injured his ankle in the 2-0 derby win over Ipswich but is ahead of schedule in his recovery.
