Young midfielder discusses his move to the CanariesLOUIS Thompson says he’s excited about the future after his switch to Norwich City.
The midfielder completed a move from Swindon Town on transfer deadline day, although he will return to the League One side on loan for the remainder of this season.
Thompson caught up with canaries.co.uk just after he signed on the dotted line at Carrow Road.
“Next summer is going to be a massive time for me and my family. I’m really looking forward to the challenge,” he said.
“I’m extremely proud. To come to a club of Norwich’s stature is a fantastic achievement for me.
“It’s a massive club, the only club in the city so they’ve got a huge fanbase. There’s not one negative thing to say about this club.”
Thompson says that, for now, his attentions will be firmly on helping the Robins achieve their target of promotion from English football’s third tier.
The 19-year-old established himself as a regular in their starting eleven last season, making 35 appearances in all competitions.
“That experience makes you that little bit more mature on the pitch, hopefully I can use that experience when called upon here,” he added.
“Swindon have made a good start to the season. I want to go there and finish the job and help get them promoted.
“I’ve been there for a long time so I want to go and help them out, then come here for a fresh start in July.”
Thompson had impressed at the County Ground with his all-action performances from the middle of the park.
“I’m a bit of an all-rounder. I like to be combative in midfield, use my energy and provide something for the team,” he commented.
“I’m willing to push myself, give myself a chance and I’m really looking forward to that test here.”
