Harrison Reed joins City on season-long loan

5 July 2017

Norwich City have completed the signing of Southampton midfielder Harrison Reed on a season-long loan deal.

A product of Saints’ Academy, Reed made his professional debut in a 5-1 League Cup victory over Barnsley in August 2013 before making his league bow against Manchester City four months later.

The 22-year-old has amassed a total of 17 Premier League appearances to date and featured six times in senior cup competitions last term – including against City in the FA Cup.

After agreeing terms on a temporary switch to Carrow Road, Reed told Norwich City TV: "Speaking to the manager, it really encouraged me to join.

"From the outside, it’s a massive club pushing to get back to the Premier League. The philosophy here suits me down to the ground so I’m really excited and very happy it’s done."

Discussing his fifth summer addition following the arrivals of Marley Watkins, Angus Gunn, Mario Vrancic and Christoph Zimmermann, Head Coach Daniel Farke said: "Harrison is a young and talented player with lots of potential.

"He is technically very good with the ball and fits my idea of football. We will look to develop and improve him, so I'm looking forward to us working together."

City Sporting Director Stuart Webber added: "We are very grateful to Southampton for their assistance in ensuring the deal to bring Harrison to Carrow Road was completed swiftly.

"We are especially grateful to their Director of Football Operations, Ross Wilson, for his role in helping to make this happen. Harrison will now link up with the rest of the senior squad for the remainder of their training camp in Ireland."
