Norwich City are confident defender Timm Klose will be staying at Carrow Road this season.

The Swiss International defender missed the tail end of City's Premier League survival bid with a serious knee injury.

He featured in Norwich's second pre-season tour game against Rubin Kazan.

Manager Alex Neil says he has no plans to sell Klose and the more quality players he can keep, the better.

“He didn’t come here to play in the Championship,” Neil told the EDP.

“We all know that, but what I have said to him is you need to give us a year to help the club and he is fine with that. No issues.

"He is a quality player and the more we can keep the better. I have no intentions to sell Timm and he is not making any waves to get out."

Peterborough United have been dealt a blow ahead of the League One season after their new signing Brad Inman broke his leg in training.

The 24-year-old only joined Posh last month after leaving Crewe Alexandra.

The Australian international tweeted that he was "devastated" to have sustained the injury which is likely to keep him out for the majority of the upcoming campaign.

Cambridge United have signed Portsmouth striker Adam McGurk on a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old only moved to Pompey last summer from Burton Albion but was placed on the transfer list.

Reflecting on last season, we felt that we required more fire power if we are to continue improving and I’m absolutely delighted we have been able to bring in Joe Pigott and now Adam McGurk.

He is a dynamic player in the way that he works his way towards the goal and from looking at his goal scoring attributes, he’s obviously had a lot of success from the middle of the park.

Adam has a flexibility to play in numerous positions, but we have brought him in as a centre forward.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says he's "delighted" for Sam Allardyce after the former Sunderland boss was confirmed as the new England manager this afternoon.

Allardyce has signed an initial two-year deal and McCarthy is confident he will be a success.

I’m absolutely delighted for Sam, first and foremost but I’m also delighted for the LMA and all the English managers out there.

As managers, we all have to cut our teeth in the game and Sam has done that. He’s been down in the lower leagues and worked his way up and his knowledge of football is superb.

He’s a very bright guy and he will get the team working hard and giving their all. If you add a better standard of player into that mix, then that could well be a recipe for success.

I’m delighted for Sam and good luck to him.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy admits the club are having to play a waiting game as they look to strengthen their squad.

Town have only managed to bring in Paul Digby and Adam Webster so far, but McCarthy is confident he will be able to add to that number in the coming weeks.

It’s a waiting game as we go on.

A lot of Premier League teams took all their players away (on pre-season) so we are still waiting on that front.

There are two or three we are trying to get in and two or three loans deals as well. But we will just keep waiting on that front.

Norwich City release kit dedicated to famous 90s strip

Norwich City have revealed their new third kit, with the strip taking inspiration from one of the Canaries' most famous kits from the 90s.

The new shirt is based on the club's 'egg and cress' kit from the 1992-94 seasons.

Norwich famously wore the kit when they beat Bayern Munich in the UEFA Cup.

This season's third kit pays homage to the famous 1992-94 kit.

We really wanted to replicate this iconic kit using a white base to give the third kit a distinctive look.

With the introduction of a new 3D crest on all of this year's shirts, it has really moved us on from where we were and lends itself to the modern shirt.

In particular, the new crest has added that 'up-to-date' feel to the classic-looking third shirt.

I hope the fans really enjoy the kit as much as we have enjoyed designing it. The design of the 1992-94 kit has definitely divided people's opinions over the years, but it's still one of the most recognisable Norwich City kits, so we wanted to create something similar.

Northampton Town have signed Peterborough United midfielder Harry Beautyman for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old has agreed a two-year deal at Sixfields.

Beautyman made 44 appearances for Posh after joining them from Welling United.

Harry is a very good addition for us.

He is a lively character and a player who has a decent amount of experience in League One. He is also a good age, who will get better and better, and I think we are signing him at a good time.

He is a box to box midfielder who creates things, makes things happen and can score a goal or two so he will add to our attacking options.

He attracted a fair amount of interest over the summer and we are pleased we have been able to bring him to the club.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town manager
