Norwich City midfielder Liam Gibbs told canaries.co.uk about his move to the club from Ipswich Town, which was announced on Friday morning.

canaries.co.uk: Liam, welcome to Norwich City. How does it feel to have signed here?

LG: I am very, very excited. I am looking forward to starting my journey as soon as possible. It is a new step for me and for my career and I am looking to make the most of it and showcase my talent and hopefully, I can help the club keep moving forward.

canaries.co.uk: What was it about Norwich and the set up here that made you want to join the club?

LG: I have seen young players in the past that have gone through the academy and into the first team. It (Norwich) is a good club for bringing players through and I just want to be the next one to get into the first team and make things happen. I see a clear pathway for me, and I am just excited to get started and to fulfil my potential and show what I can do.

The pathway is definitely something I have look at as to why I have decided to come here. I see a clear pathway for me, and I am just excited to get started and to fulfil my potential and show what I can do.

canaries.co.uk: It is a very brave decision you have made to have joined from Ipswich Town, but one I suppose you thought long and hard about and was the right decision for you and your football career?

LG: I have got to do what’s best for my career, at the end of the day, and I felt like this was the club that I needed to come to. It is not ideal being the rival club, but I am happy with my decision, and I am sure it will be beneficial for me and my career. I just wanted to get started now. I have been here waiting for it to happen and now I am ready to go in, get started, meet the team and play some football.

canaries.co.uk: Just tell us a bit about yourself as a player and your style of play?

LG: I like to be on the ball, I like to pass the ball and I like to make things happen and create chances, to be a goalscorer and to assist. That is what I want to do, to create chances at the top end of the pitch.

canaries.co.uk: You have been captain as well of the under-15, under-16 and under-18 sides at Ipswich Town. How much did you enjoy that responsibility?

LG: I love leading the team and leading by example. That is what I want to do. I like to be a leader on the pitch and off the pitch and be a good role model for everyone. Hopefully, I can come here and use my leadership skills and be a good team player.

canaries.co.uk: You had a very successful campaign as well last season reaching the FA Youth Cup semi-final. What was that experience like for you?

LG: That was an amazing experience, getting to the semi-finals of the Youth Cup as an underdog in most of our rounds, really. It was amazing and a great team performance. I have won trophies in the past with Ipswich and I hope to come here and do the same. Win some trophies, put in some good team performances and go on go on a bit of a cup run with the team.
