Norwich City have been dealt a blow with the news that summer signing Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe has been ruled out for several weeks with medial ligament damage.

The Belgian injured his knee in Saturday's draw with Sheffield Wednesday and was forced to come off at half time.

The Canaries will now have to decide whether the 25-year-old will undergo surgery in the coming weeks.

"He picked the injury up after five minutes of the game, and I think it says volumes for the lad himself that he carried on with an injury like that.

We’re hoping it’s not going to require an operation, but he certainly won’t be with us for the next few weeks.”

Colchester United striker Dan Holman has joined Conference side Aldershot Town on a month's loan.

The 24-year-old signed for the U's in the summer, but has hardly featured.

He has recently returned from a similar loan spell at Wrexham where he was restricted to limited game time.

"We're hoping that Dan will be able to get some minutes on the pitch this time.

He went to Wrexham, but only played 35 minutes so he's still not where we need him to be where match fitness is concerned.

He'll now go to Aldershot and will see where it goes from there."

Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings has been named the SkyBet Championship's Player of the Month for September.

The 21 year old beat off competition from Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome, Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis and Blackburn Rovers' Ben Marshall.

And in an awards double for Ipswich, boss Mick McCarthy was named the Championship's Manager of the Month for September, after steering the Blues to four wins and a draw over the period.

On Mings, Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “This flying full-back is showing, at 21, an athleticism and attitude that is great see.

“He can defend and he can create for his team. No wonder top-flight clubs were courting him.”
