Kenny McLean: It's a perfect move for me

22 January 2018

Kenny McLean is excited about the what the future holds at Norwich City after signing a three-and-a-half-year deal from Aberdeen.

The midfielder will be loaned back to the Scottish side for the remainder of this season, but considers a move to Carrow Road perfect for his long-term plan.

"Recently I saw a bit of Norwich, and it excites me to come and play here," McLean told Norwich City TV.

"The way the manager wants to play really does suit me, and I’m just looking forward to getting started. It has the right feel about it.

"I’ve always had ambitions of coming down to play in England and the Championship is an excellent league. I’ve been in Scotland my whole career and wanted something different.

"I let the manager at Aberdeen know that early on and then it’s just been about choosing the right place for me. This is perfect.

"There's been a lot of talk about my future and taking everything into account, this felt like the right club."

McLean says speaking to boss Daniel Farke was a telling factor in making the decision to pen terms with the Canaries.

"The manager’s philosophy suits me," the 26-year-old added.

"The way he put the club across to me was excellent, and everything sounded perfect. He seems like someone everyone wants to work for.

"I'll need to adapt to the way he wants to play, and that takes time. Doing that in pre-season is right for me.

"Hopefully I can fit in nicely and be a creative player for the team."
