McCourt spent the week training with the First Division outfit as Canaries boss Nigel Worthington wanted to scrutinise the teenager's ability.
The exciting winger has now returned to Spotland after his stint in East Anglia with Norwich not planning an immediate bid for the Northern Ireland international.
But Dale boss Alan Buckley has confirmed he will not prevent McCourt from returning to Carrow Road in the future if Worthington wants to have another look at the 19-year-old.
"I spoke to Nigel Worthington on Thursday and he said Patrick had done reasonably well there but for the moment they just want to monitor his progress," Buckley told the club's website.
"If in the future they feel it's time, and I feel it's time, for him to return to Norwich for whatever reason then he'll do so."
