Gorleston-born Matthews, has been with Norwich City’s Academy since he was ten-years-old.

“I’ve been at Norwich a long time and have another year to impress now. In the long-run, I want to play here, although I’m focussing on my loan move and hopefully getting some games under my belt first.”

New Norwich City signing Youssouf Mulumbu says that he can't wait to play in front of the Canaries fans when the new Premier League season gets underway.

The 28-year-old completed his move to Carrow Road a couple of weeks ago after leaving West Brom.

Mulumbu has now started training with his new teammates, and admits that he's been impressed with what he's seen.

"My big memory is when we (West Brom) lost 4-0 away two years ago and the Norwich crowd were absolutely terrific.

I remember we couldn’t talk on the pitch because there was so much noise. For me, the fans are really important because they drive you on; they can be the twelfth man.

I'm really looking forward to getting back to what I do, and to be playing at Carrow Road. I'm 100 per cent confident it's going to be a great season for myself and Norwich.

We've had two weeks training together and I've seen the quality we have.

I had six or seven years at West Brom, but now I have a new challenge and new ambitions to win my position here and keep it."

– Youssouf Mulumbu, Norwich City
