Norwich City supporters' group welcome Moxey exit

One of the leading Norwich City supporters' groups, 'The Canaries Trust', have welcomed the resignation of outgoing Chief Executive Jez Moxey, but have urged the club to work quickly to replace him.

The 53-year-old only took the job in the summer, but left Carrow Road last night by mutual consent.

It means that The Championship club are once again on the lookout for a new CEO, having also had to deal with the departure of David McNally back in May.

While the board of the Canaries Trust welcome the departure of Jez Moxey, a person whose approach and policies have, in our opinion, contributed significantly to the rift between fans and the Football Club we are also concerned that once again the club finds itself without a Chief Executive at a critical period.

We have just experienced a period where the club appeared to be drifting without clear direction and we hope that the board will now be able to find ways to re-engage with the fans and to appoint a new Chief Executive who can drive the club forward.

This has not been a good year for the club or its fans and we trust that this incident will mark the turning of a corner.

Norwich City Chief Executive Jez Moxey has tonight resigned from his position.

The former Wolves CEO only took over in the summer, but has now left the club by mutual consent.

The details behind why the decision has been made haven't been made pubic yet, but chairman Ed Balls admitted in a statement on the club's official website that Moxey's appointment "hadn't worked out satisfactorily."

Myself and the Board would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Jez for his hard work since joining us last year and most recently in the transfer window.

However the role has not worked out satisfactorily for either Jez and his family or for the Football Club, and all parties have professionally and amicably agreed to move on. We wish Jez all the best in his future career and now our focus is on the next steps for Norwich City.

– Ed Balls, Norwich City chairman

Finance Director Steve Stone will now fill the role of Interim Chief Executive while a replacement is found - as he did when David McNally left back in May.

Norwich City leave it late to sign Wildschut from Wigan

Norwich City have completed the signing of Dutch winger Yanic Wildschut from fellow Championship side Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

The deal for the 25-year-old was announced just a minute before the 11pm deadline, with the fee believed to be in the region of £7 million.

Derby County were also interested in signing the former Middlesbrough man but the Canaries won the race for his signature.

Wildschut, who recently scored twice for Wigan against Norwich's rivals Ipswich Town, has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with an option a further year at Carrow Road.

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

Yanic will bring pace and directness, and he's the type of lad that on his day, he can create absolute havoc.

He's still learning the game, he's still got improvements to make but when he's on form he's a really top operator at this level.

There was stiff competition for him, we had to make sure we put a good deal in place - however, with us losing two left-siders, it was important that we brought two in and we've done that.

– Alex Neil, Norwich City manager

Wildschut is the second Dutchman to sign for Norwich today, with Ajax left-back Mitchell Dijks also joining on loan.

Southend United also completed some late business, bringing in Lincoln City striker Theo Robinson.

The 28-year-old is no stranger to Roots Hall, having spent time on loan at the club eight years ago.

Robinson has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract with the Shrimpers.

Norwich City winger Robbie Brady has joined Premier League side Burnley for a club record fee.

The exact terms of the fee haven't been disclosed, but it's believed to be in the region of £13 million.

The Republic of Ireland international has agreed a three-and-a-half-year contract at Turf Moor, with a further year’s option.

Brady joined the Canaries in the summer of 2015 and made more than 60 appearances for the club.

Norwich City pull off 'coup' to sign Dijks on loan

Ajax left-back Mitchell Dijks has performed a U-turn to sign for Norwich City on loan, just a few days after rejecting a permanent move to The Championship club.

The Canaries had agreed a €4 million fee with the Dutch giants, but Dijks decided to turn the offer down.

However, the 23-year-old has now had a change of heart to sign for Norwich on loan until the end of the season.

The deal also includes the option for Alex Neil's side to buy him in the summer.

This is one where we've had to work hard to get it over the line but for us it's a bit of a coup.

He's played Champions League football and he's really highly thought of. He wasn't playing this season at Ajax, and that gave us an opportunity.

He'll bring size and stature; he's six feet four inches tall, strong and athletic. I think all of those qualities are certainly things that will add to the squad.

Norwich City winger Canós moves back to Brentford

Norwich City have sold winger Sergi Canós to Brentford.

The 19-year-old only joined the Canaries in the summer from Liverpool but has found himself out of favour ever since.

He has now agreed a four-and-a-half-year contract with Brentford who have paid their Championship rivals an undisclosed fee.

Canós enjoyed a productive spell with the Bees on loan last season, scoring seven goals.

Sergi's development hasn't continued as much as he'd have liked here because of the emergence of Jacob Murphy, who's been excellent for us so far this season.

I think for Sergi there was a lot of frustration on his part, which you can understand. For him to develop, he needs to play games and we've got a good deal for both parties.

– Alex Neil, Norwich City manager

Canós is the second departure of the day from Carrow Road so far, with striker Carlton Morris having joined Rotherham United on loan this afternoon.

Norwich City striker Carlton Morris has joined fellow Championship side Rotherham United on loan.

The 21-year-old will spend the rest of the season at the New York Stadium after failing to break into the Canaries' first team.

Morris enjoyed a productive loan spell at Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical last season, scoring eight times.

It was a big frustration of mine for Carlton in the early part of the season because I wanted to get him out on loan.

I'm pleased for him that he's now got this move. Carlton needs to continue his path in terms of playing football, and this will certainly allow him to do that.

– Alex Neil, Norwich City manager

Out of favour Norwich City winger Sergi Canós could be set for a move back to former club Brentford, according to reports.

The Spaniard has failed to make an impact at Carrow Road since joining from Liverpool in the summer and is now believed to be heading to Griffin Park for a medical this morning.

It's understood a £2.5 million fee has been agreed between the two clubs.

Canós enjoyed a productive loan spell with the Bees last season, scoring seven goals.
