“That’s it for us. We have a strong squad, certainly the strongest we’ve had since I’ve been at the club.

Alex (Henshall) is available for transfer. He is not going to get in front of the other lads here and it’s time he moved on. I’ve told him that.”

Norwich City have bolstered their attacking options with the signing of Dynamo Kiev striker Dieumerci Mbokani.

Mbokani joins on a season long loan with a view to a permanent move.

The Congolese forward has played for Anderlecht and Stanard Liege.

Norwich boss Alex Neil told the Canaries website that he was delighted with the deal.

"Dieumerci is going to give us competition at the top end of the pitch, and I think we've needed a bit of strengthening there. He's a big, strong number nine - he can take the ball in, he's mobile and he's a real threat in the box. We're hoping all of those things come together for him. He's got a good track record and he's played Champions League football, so I think it's an exciting signing for us."

In the morning session, there was similar disappointment for Olympic bronze medallist Robbie Grabarz.

The St Neot's athlete, who was also suffered long-term injuries since London 2012, failed to make the high jump final. The 27-year-old was the only British athlete in action, clearing 2.22 and 2.26m at the first time of asking.

However, Grabarz failed three times to make 2.29m, leaving him outside the top 12 and ending his hopes of a place in the final.
