The Latest Norwich FC Transfer News for 2017 – 2018
- Thu, 03 May 2018 12:32:26 +0000: Norwich’s James Maddison: ‘I like having pressure on my shoulders’ - Norwich City | The Guardian
Norwich have failed to reach the Premier League but James Maddison has caught the eye and it would be no surprise if the midfielder started next season at a top-flight club
James Maddison has a habit of producing the spectacular, so it is no surprise he exudes confidence. “I’ve always wanted to be a winner, the best player, the one that everyone is talking about,” he says. “I’m greedy in that sense.”
The 21-year-old, by his own admission, treads a fine line between confidence and arrogance but Norwich’s skilful midfielder need not apologise for savouring centre stage or relishing responsibility.Continue reading...
- Wed, 18 Apr 2018 11:58:31 +0000: Ryan Sessegnon is not the only gifted young player in the Championship - Norwich City | The Guardian
The 17-year-old was voted best player, best young player and best apprentice at the EFL awards but he’s just one of many talents excelling in the Championship this season
Ryan Sessegnon won’t forget Sunday night’s EFL awards ceremony in a hurry. He was crowned the Championship player of the season, young player of the season and apprentice of the season, as well as earning his place in the team of the season and the club-developed XI. The Fulham teenager’s clean sweep came just a few days after he had been nominated for the PFA’s young player of the year award, the first player from outside of the top flight to be shortlisted. These remarkable achievements suggest the 17-year-old is a genuine superstar in the making, but he is not the only exciting talent in the Championship.Continue reading...
- Fri, 06 Apr 2018 23:39:39 +0000: Delia Smith hails Norwich’s new direction to improve academy - Norwich City | The Guardian
Norwich’s majority shareholder Delia Smith has taken influence from Guy Roux at Auxerre in rebuilding the club with an emphasis on youth
“It’s really simple for us. We’re a self-funded club. So we know where we are, we know our expectations,” Stuart Webber says. “Norwich is pretty unique; we’re the only club in the county, we’ve got a massive supporter base, we’ve got a massive catchment area. We do things because it’s right for our football club and we felt that it was right to revamp the academy and invest in it.”
Webber is giving a tour of Norwich City’s training centre. An intense 34-year-old recruited from Huddersfield last year to become the club’s first sporting director, he has a plan to make this compact site, hidden on a country lane off the city’s southern bypass, a cutting-edge facility. There will be new schoolrooms, changing rooms and pitches. The upgrade will help maintain the academy’s category A status but also – if Webber is successful – form the heart of the club’s footballing philosophy. He intends for the academy to produce one homegrown youngster capable of starting for the first team each year.Continue reading...
- Wed, 21 Feb 2018 22:57:33 +0000: Championship roundup: Nélson Oliveira stuns Wolves to earn draw for Norwich - Norwich City | The Guardian
• Leaders held 2-2 thanks to Nélson Oliveira’s 35-yard screamer
• Derby and Leeds and Bristol City and Fulham draw; Cardiff win
Nélson Oliveira’s spectacular late goal saw Norwich grab a point in stoppage time for the second time in four days as they drew 2-2 with the Championship leaders Wolves at Molineux.
A Jamal Lewis own goal and Alfred N’Diaye’s header appeared to have the home side cruising midway through the first half, but Christoph Zimmermann swiftly pulled one back and the Canaries were good value for their point. Timm Klose had snatched a draw in Sunday’s East Anglia derby and Norwich repeated the trick as the substitute Oliveira beat John Ruddy at his near post with a 35-yard effort in added time.Continue reading...
- Sun, 18 Feb 2018 14:45:21 +0000: Timm Klose gives Norwich a point in dramatic finish against Ipswich - Norwich City | The Guardian
The meeting of East Anglia’s two clubs may have acquired an irreverent nickname but this match should leave no doubts as to the strength of feeling generated by the Old Farm derby. It was as if the harvest festival and summer equinox had come all at once.
Two crunching headers in the dying minutes provided a dramatic enough climax in itself. Timm Klose’s 95th-minute equaliser for Norwich, six minutes after Luke Chambers thought he had sealed a late win for Ipswich, caused pandemonium among players and fans alike. But Mick McCarthy also saw his emotions boil over and the Ipswich manager was accused of swearing at his own fans as he celebrated Chambers’ goal.Continue reading...

Sunderland will travel to Bury in the EFL Cup first round following their relegation from the Premier League.
Norwich City have just had a bid to bring Leeds United player Robert Snodgrass to Carrow Road as Neil Warnock last night dashed all hopes of the Canaries signing the talented winger. Manager Chris Hughton is said to be extremely disappointed with the decision as he has been a firm fan of the player for some time but still hold hope that a deal can be struck between the two sides before the start of the season.
Norwich striker Chris Martin and his agent have both stated today that the striker would prefer to stay with the canaries amid rumours the player is surplus to requirements at Carrow Road. The twenty three year old found holding down a regular spot extremely difficult last year and then was loaned out to Crystal palace shortly afterwards but the player has now committed to the club and states he is willing to work for his place which will be great news for Norwich City fans.
Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies is another target for Hughton this summer as he has long been admirer of the young defender after he has made it clear he would like to move on from the Blues. The player is still under contract to Birmingham until 2014 after he arrived at the club from Aston Villa in early 2011 and it is thought the Blues will be holding out for a large transfer fee for the player as they have no intention of losing one of their best defenders for less than his market value.
