Norwich City have been dealt a blow with the news that summer signing Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe has been ruled out for several weeks with medial ligament damage.

The Belgian injured his knee in Saturday's draw with Sheffield Wednesday and was forced to come off at half time.

The Canaries will now have to decide whether the 25-year-old will undergo surgery in the coming weeks.

"He picked the injury up after five minutes of the game, and I think it says volumes for the lad himself that he carried on with an injury like that.

We’re hoping it’s not going to require an operation, but he certainly won’t be with us for the next few weeks.”

Ipswich Town defender Tyrone Mings has been named the SkyBet Championship's Player of the Month for September.

The 21 year old beat off competition from Norwich City striker Cameron Jerome, Blackpool goalkeeper Joe Lewis and Blackburn Rovers' Ben Marshall.

And in an awards double for Ipswich, boss Mick McCarthy was named the Championship's Manager of the Month for September, after steering the Blues to four wins and a draw over the period.

On Mings, Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman said: “This flying full-back is showing, at 21, an athleticism and attitude that is great see.

“He can defend and he can create for his team. No wonder top-flight clubs were courting him.”

Norwich City and Ipswich Town stars Cameron Jerome and Tyrone Mings are both up for the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month awards, while Town boss Mick McCarthy is in the running for the Manager prize.

Canaries striker Jerome has been in great form since making a £1.5million move from Stoke City, scoring five goals in as many games in September.

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town have flourished since losing the East Anglian derby in August- picking up 13 points from a possible 15 last month.

Left-back Tyrone Mings has been a key part of Town's success, showing exactly why he was the subject of Premier League interest in the summer.

The 21-year-old has been a revelation after filling the gap left by Aaron Cresswell, providing assists in the wins over Brighton and Hove Albion and Wigan Athletic.

Mings and Jerome face competition from Blackburn Rovers winger Ben Marshall and former Peterborough goalkeeper Joe Lewis to land the award.

Finally, Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy will be seen as the favourite to land the Manager's prize.

The Irishman is up against Charlton's Bob Peeters, Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka and Derby's Steve McClaren.

The winners will be announced tomorrow.

Norwich City have loaned out-of-favour defender Sébastien Bassong to promotion rivals Watford.

The Cameroonian hasn't featured since Neil Adams first took over in April, and he will now spend the next 93 days at Vicarage Road.

Adams had recently hinted at reintegrating Bassong back into his squad, but he has now decided against it.

“It’s important for Seb to get some first team football and keep himself fit and involved, so this is a good short-term loan move for all parties involved.”

Norwich City FA Youth Cup winning captain Cameron McGeehan has signed a new two-year contract at Carrow Road.

The 19-year-old has been a regular with the club's under-21s side and spent time on loan at Luton Town last season as the Hatters stormed to The Conference title.

Luton boss John Still made no secret of his desire to lure McGeehan back to Kenilworth Road recently, but his hopes of landing the Northern Irishman on a permanent deal will have been dealt a blow by today's news.

“We spoke to them (Norwich) and the amount of money they wanted was not for this level.

I know he plays for Norwich, but he’s a Luton player and is certainly someone if we could, we would."

– John Still, Luton Town Manager

McGeehan is yet to make a senior appearance for the Canaries, but he did make the bench in a League Cup win over Crawley Town earlier this season.

Ipswich Town manager McCarthy: "We want to get promoted"

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy believes that his team can be involved in the promotion shake-up at the end of the season.

Town are currently on an impressive six match unbeaten run, and recently won four games in a row.

A 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday means that Ipswich are now just two points off the top two in The Championship, and McCarthy is setting his sights on top flight football next term.

"I'm happy with the squad and even though it's a dirty word and we can't mention it, we want to get promoted.

We set off with designs of the top six. I don't think we're one of the best teams or best squads in the league, although we're a competent squad, hard to beat and we've certainly improved.

We'll keep scrapping away and see where we end up."

– Mick McCarthy, Ipswich Town manager
