The latest squad news from Colney

NORWICH City boss Alex Neil has no fresh injury concerns ahead of his side visiting Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day.

Defender Andre Wisdom will be assessed nearer to the game, while longer-term absentee Matt Jarvis continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury.

"It will be a last minute decision with Andre as he's not fully fit," Neil explained on Wednesday.

"Matt's not got a timeline in terms of his recovery. He's doing well at the minute, he's ticking most boxes, but he's a high-impact, high-energy player so he's got to be 100% right."

City's trip to Tottenham marks the first of three Barclays Premier League matches in the space of seven days, and Neil stressed the need to keep his squad fresh during a hectic festive schedule.

"With the intensity the games are played at, to ask the same eleven players to churn it out at that level is extremely difficult," he added.
