'Keeper joins Accies after penning new City contract

YOUNG City goalkeeper Remi Matthews has joined Hamilton Academical on a season-long loan after signing a new contract with the Canaries.

The 22-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal at Carrow Road, with the option for a further 12 months.

He will now join Alex Neil's former side Hamilton for the remainder of the 2016-17 campaign after temporary stints in Sky Bet League One with Burton Albion and Doncaster Rovers last term.

Matthews told "It's always nice to have that security behind me, so to have another year under my belt is a positive step.

"The coaching staff felt that I need to be playing more games so hopefully I can go up to Hamilton and play as much as possible.

"I was out on loan twice last year and felt like I was improving with every game, so I'm looking to build on that and show everyone what I can do." 

Matthews, who has been at Norwich since the age of ten, is yet to make his competitive debut for the Club but featured for half an hour in the first team's friendly win over Walsall last Saturday.

Neil added at Friday's press conference: "Remi needs to go out and get some games, and he'll go up to Hamilton and hopefully get a good season under his belt.

"You've got Celtic and now Rangers in that league, so it will be really competitive for him."
