New Norwich City signing Tony Andreu is in contention to make his debut for the club in tomorrow's Championship clash with Blackpool.

The Canaries were waiting on clearance from Fifa and the Football League, but that has now been received.

Andreu arrived on deadline day in a £1million deal, and will wear the number 12 shirt at Carrow Road.

“It is really, really exciting for me to be part of this massive club and I’m really happy.

I’m looking forward to playing at the stadium. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Norwich fans. It’s always full and the atmosphere is brilliant.

I have no specific targets, but I just want to play as many games as I can and try to improve as a player, while trying to add something to the team."

Meanwhile, Norwich manager Alex Neil admits that the club could look to sign West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans when the loan window opens next week.

A permanent swap deal involving Martin Olsson fell through minutes before the deadline, but Neil says that the Canaries could revisit the possibility of signing the Scot on a temporary basis in the coming weeks.

Leeds United defender Giuseppe Bellusci has been cleared of racially abusing Norwich City's Cameron Jerome.

Canaries striker Jerome reported to referee Mark Clattenburg that the Italian had directed a racist slur in his direction during an altercation in The Championship match at Carrow Road in October.

Bellusci was subsequently charged with misconduct, but always maintained his innocence.

The defender would have faced a minimum five-game ban if found guilty of the offence, but a Football Association disciplinary commission cleared him of any wrongdoing at a hearing this week.

"Giuseppe has made it clear from the moment the incident happened that he did not use racist language, and the FA commission has found that to be the case.

Leeds United is a fully inclusive organisation and through the efforts of the Leeds United Foundation aims to work with every aspect of our community by celebrating diversity and recognising cultural differences.

The club is proud to work with many areas of society to improve social cohesion and social mobility and has strong partnerships with community groups including the Chapeltown Youth Football Development Centre and the Hamara Centre in Beeston.

Leeds has a diverse, multicultural community and we are committed to supporting everyone who can benefit from a link with our football club."

Hamilton: "We couldn't deny Andreu his Norwich City move"

Hamilton Academical say that they couldn't stand in the way of Tony Andreu's move to Norwich City.

The 26-year-old completed his move to Norfolk last night in a deal thought to be in excess of £1million.

Frenchman Andreu has scored 12 goals in the Scottish Premier League this season, and will link up again with his former manager Alex Neil at Carrow Road.

Hamilton say that they will use the funds received to produce more young players in the future.

"After last Saturday’s spirited display at Dundee we thought we would enjoy a period of stability to allow Martin (Canning), his staff and new players to settle in.

However, we were disrupted yet again when late yesterday afternoon Norwich City tabled an offer for Tony (Andreu).

As you are all aware we will not deny staff or players the opportunity to improve their circumstances and so it has proven with Tony.

The sums received will be reinvested entirely within the club structure to assist us in producing more quality players and to allow us to expand our ever increasing community programs.

In conclusion I would thank Tony for his terrific play and goals that have lit up the last twelve months at the club. He has been an admirable player and person for us in all respects."

Despite securing Andreu's services, the Canaries saw a swap deal with West Brom involving Graham Dorrans and Martin Olsson collapse at the final hurdle.

It's understood that Dorrans was prepared to join Norwich, but the deal fell down when Olsson failed to arrive for his West Brom medical on time.

However, according to The Daily Mirror, Dorrans will move to the Canaries on a temporary basis when the loan window opens next week.
