Norwich City goalkeeper Remi Matthews has joined Championship rivals Bolton Wanderers on loan, with a deal in place for the move to become permanent in January.

The 24-year-old, who came through Norwich's academy, has spent the majority of his time at Carrow Road out on loan - most recently at Plymouth Argyle.

Following the expiration of Angus Gunn's loan spell, Matthews was hoping to break into the Canaries' first team this season but failed to impress in pre-season.

"I’m delighted to be here. This is a massive club that is going places and the main thing for me is that I wanted to come to a football club with ambition," Matthews said.

"This was definitely the move that I wanted to get done. It’s a different scenery after being at Norwich for so long, but it’s a massive club that should be in the Premier League."

Meanwhile, Southend United have signed Bristol City striker Shawn McCoulsky on a season-long loan.
