"It was very difficult. The game itself I enjoyed a lot. I think on another day we could have scored. We had our chances.

"To wake up and find that I had Covid... it was annoying because I felt fine. It was not the best ending to what was meant to be a good summer."

Asked about his move to Norwich, he replied:

"I was asking Grant, 'What's it like? What's the style? What's the boss like? What are the boys like?'

"I was just constantly peppering him with questions. He was just honest with me. Everything he told me was really good.

"I had some options but Norwich was first choice. I came here, spoke to the boss, and everything he said sounded really good; the way he wants to play, the way he sees me fitting in. That was what made my choice easier to come to Norwich.

"Norwich play football that suits my style, playing out from the back and wanting to keep the ball. For me, this was the perfect opportunity. This is my kind of style of play where I want to play out, get on the ball and make things happen.”
