Attacker awaiting Football League clearance to make debut

TONY Andreu is excited about the challenge as he starts his Norwich City career.

The French attacker arrived from Hamilton Academical in the final 24 hours of the winter transfer window, with his move receiving the required FIFA approval today.

He will wear the shirt number 12, but is still awaiting the Football League clearance required to be able to make his debut against Blackpool at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Speaking exclusively to Norwich City TV, holding aloft the Canaries shirt for the first time, the 26-year-old says he’s looking forward to getting started.

“It is really, really exciting for me to be part of this massive club and I’m really happy,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to playing at the stadium. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Norwich fans. It’s always full and the atmosphere is brilliant.

“I have no specific targets, but I just want to play as many games as I can and try to improve as a player, while trying to add something to the team.

“This is my new challenge and I want to play my best football.”

Andreu follows Alex Neil to the Club, his manager with the Scottish Premiership outfit, and says it will be of benefit to him and the team that he’s familiar with the methods of City’s boss.

“It’s a really good thing for because I know the coach, and I think he’s a great coach. I’m here to try and play and do my best, so it’s really good for me to have someone I know in the club,” he added.

“Through last season and through this season, it’s been amazing for me. I think he will try and help me do the same now, so I’m delighted.

“Hamilton was a great club for me, and we did a lot of good things. We got promoted last year, and then this year in the top league we were really good, so I’m really happy to have played there, but now I’m delighted to be part of Norwich City.”
