Norwich City have unveiled their new away kit as the new Championship season edges ever closer.

The Canaries kick-off their campaign at Blackburn Rovers on August 6.

For the away kit this year, we have blended the shirt, shorts and socks for a complete look, much like this year’s home kit.

The kit is very clean and simple with a strong 70s and 80s Italian feel. I believe that our boys away from home will look ready to do battle and that’s what we wanted to achieve in this kit.

Peterborough United have re-signed former striker Paul Taylor on a one-year deal.

The 28-year-old was a big hit at Posh in his first spell at the club before he was sold to Ipswich Town for £1.5 million in 2012.

Taylor has been training with Posh during pre-season after taking a year out of the professional game.

He will cover for fellow striker Lee Angol who is facing a long spell on the sidelines.

It is a great signing for us. A fit Paul Taylor is one of the best players in this league, if not beyond, so we are hopefully going to get him fit.

He has looked sharp but we obviously need to step it up fitness wise. Paul is looking forward to it and everyone is looking forward to having him at the club.

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson admits he's 'deeply disappointed' that defender Kyle McFadzean has decided to join Championship newcomers Burton Albion.

The 29-year-old joined the Brewers in a club record move yesterday.

The Dons were keen to keep the former Crawley Town man, but McFadzean made it clear that he saw his future elsewhere.

I’m deeply disappointed to lose Kyle. We had meetings with him in the summer – he knows what our ambitions are for next season and going forward but he’s decided his future lies elsewhere.

It’s been a testing time but we’ve been strong and stuck to our principles – showing respect to our players and our fans.

This deal is in the best interest of the Football Club.
