Chelsea starlet signs on-loan with Norwich City

Norwich City have signed Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on loan for the rest of the season.

Bamford, 22, spent the first half of the season on loan at Crystal Palace but it ended in controversy when he said his spell there had been "terrible".

The Grantham-born forward has yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea but came to prominence during a a loan spell at MK Dons where he scored 18 goals.

Last season he was named as the Sky Bet Championship's Player of the Year after scoring 17 times in 38 league matches for Middlesbrough. He faced his new side in last season's Championship play-off final at Wembley.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk about his latest loan move, Bamford said:

"I'm really happy to be here, and the sooner I'm able to get involved the better. That's what I want to do personally, but it's also about helping Norwich to get the points required to stay in the league."

Norwich City striker Jamar Loza has joined Southend United on loan until the end of the season.

Loza is no stranger to Roots Hall, having also spent time on loan there in 2014.

The deal includes the option for a permanent move in the summer.

"I've worked with Jamar before, he's a likeable guy. He comes in with a smile on his face, trains with a smile on his face and plays with a smile on his face.

He knows us well, we know him well, we know he's got pace and a eye for goal. He leads the line, he's gets in behind, and he's a threat with his goal prowess.

We thought it was a no brainer to bring in Jamar until the end of the season, it provides us an opportunity to know and understand the player even more whilst forming a basis for continuity once the loan period comes to an end with a view to a permanent deal at the end of it."

– Phil Brown, Southend United manager

Norwich City have signed Wolfsburg centre-back Timm Klose for an undisclosed fee.

The Swiss international has signed a three-and-a-half year contract at Carrow Road and becomes Norwich's fourth signing of the transfer window.

Klose was a regular for Wolfsburg last season but has lost his place in the side this campaign thanks to the arrival of former Bayern Munich centre-back Dante.

"Timm has got plenty of experience having played in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League and for his country, which will be an asset to us.

As a player, he's got good technical ability and he's solid in the air.

He can also play at either right centre-back or left centre-back."

"When I started football, for me it was always a dream to play in the Premier League and now Norwich have given me a big chance.

Now I want to give everything I can to be a good player in this league.

When I came here (Norwich) and saw the training ground, the stadium, and everything - it was fantastic. This place smells like football, and that's how I want to play.

I can't wait to hear the fans and play in front of them."

I'm delighted to get the deal done, and it happening on my birthday makes it extra special. York gave me the platform to kick on so I owe a lot to them, but it's about what happens next now.

Norwich is a huge club and I'm looking forward to developing myself as a player here."
