Harrison Reed: Norwich's philosophy suits me

5 July 2017

Harrison Reed envisages himself fitting neatly into Norwich City’s new style under Daniel Farke after joining the Canaries on a season-long loan from Southampton.

The 22-year-old completed a temporary switch to Carrow Road on Wednesday, having spent the entirety of his football career so far with the Saints after progressing through their youth system.

“I had a conversation with the Head Coach and I could tell his philosophy suited me down to the ground,” Reed told Norwich City TV.

"The last couple of seasons I’ve played as a deep-lying midfielder. I like to get on the ball and keep things ticking over, as well as being aggressive to win it back when we’re out of possession.

"I’ve been at Southampton for a long time and this is my first loan move. I’m really excited to come down here, get everything sorted and head to Ireland to meet the lads.

"It’s important to integrate yourself as quickly as possible. It’s also important for me to learn how the coach wants me to play so I can make the changes to my game to adapt to that."

Reed was further convinced the move was a good one by the advice of fellow players at Southampton, including former City winger Nathan Redmond.

"Speaking to people like Nathan, they said it’s a great club," he explained.

"As soon as I heard about it I spoke to him to get an insight. He had nothing but positive things to say so I’m really happy. From the outside, it’s a massive club pushing to get back to the Premier League.

"Most games I’ve seen the stadium has a packed crowd every week. The fans are very passionate and that spurs you on when you’re on the pitch.

"I’m looking forward to hitting the ground running before playing there this season."
