Departing midfielder Gary O’Neil signed for City on a two-year deal in the summer of 2014.

The experienced campaigner made 24 appearances in his first term at Carrow Road, coming on as a late substitute in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final triumph over Middlesbrough.

Despite not making a Premier League start until November last season, O’Neil would go on to establish himself in Alex Neil’s team, notching 31 appearances in all competitions. In total, he played 55 games for the Canaries.

Former Chelsea youngster Reiss Awuah joined on a scholarship in January 2014 before agreeing a two-year professional contract that summer. His time with the Under-21s has been heavily disrupted by injury, with the defender restricted to just one substitute appearance last season.

Afolabi Coker, a centre-back, signed a one-year deal at the beginning of last season soon after leaving Leeds United, going on to play 15 times for the Under-21s over the course of 2015-16.

After signing in 2012, Adel Gafaiti became a mainstay of the Development Squad before joining Oldham Athletic on loan in 2014. He made one appearance for the Club’s Under-21s last year.

Reece Hall-Johnson, Cameron King and Cameron Norman all had big parts to play in the City Under-18s side that famously lifted the FA Youth Cup in 2013.

Hall-Johnson and King each went on to make one appearance for City’s first-team; Norman spent the majority of 2015-16 on loan at Vanarama National League side Woking.

Jamar Loza, a Jamaica international, memorably scored a last-gasp equaliser for the first-team away to Huddersfield Town in the Club’s promotion-winning season of 2014-15.

He made six appearances for the Club in total, while also having loan spells at Coventry City, Leyton Orient, Yeovil Town, Stevenage and Southend United.

Arinse Uade signed a short-term professional deal last December, playing seven times for the Under-21s.

Norwich City would like to thank these players for their contributions, and wish them the very best for the future.
