Championship club Norwich City have announced a new three-year sponsorship with mobile gaming and sports-betting operator LeoVegas.

LeoVegas will become the club’s main sponsor for the next three seasons from next month.

The company, whose ambassador is comedian Johnny Vegas, has sponsorship ties with Brentford Football Club and Leicester Tigers.

The club said the new sponsorship will generate vital income into the club.

Managing Director Steve Stone said: “We are delighted to welcome LeoVegas as our Principal Partner for the next three seasons, and as such they are making a vital commitment to Norwich City."

Norwich City youngster Ebou Adams has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on a six-month loan deal.

The 21-year-old midfielder moved to Norwich from non-league outfit Dartford in 2016, and has been a regular in the club's under 23s team.

He helped the Canaries reach two cup semi-finals last season, but is yet to make his first team debut at Carrow Road.

We think this is Ebou’s best opportunity to get games under his belt in senior football until January. It’s a really good loan – Shrewsbury are a good club and Paul Hurst is a good manager and someone who I know really well.

We know they’ll look after him in the way we’d want them to, and we felt this was too good an opportunity to turn down.

– Richard Money, Norwich City Academy manager

So far, every sample has failed the tests. The government plans to examine cladding from up to 600 blocks.

Norfolk and Norwich say they are working with the fire service to ensure the building is safe for staff and patients.

We have robust systems and processes in place for fire safety and fire risk assessments are carried out across the hospital site on an annual basis.

We have a limited amount of cladding in non-inpatient areas which we are currently testing as a precautionary measure.

We are currently liaising with the Norfolk Resilience Forum which includes representatives from the fire service.
