Norwich City has turned to the Premier League champions in its bid to gain traction in the top flight.

The Canaries have added Patrick Roberts on loan from Manchester City, the 22-year-old’s fifth loan stint in five years.

The winger managed an assist in 21 matches for La Liga’s Girona this season, and is two seasons removed from an 11-goal, 19-assist campaign with Celtic.

Roberts joined Man City from Fulham after the 2014-15 season and appeared three times for the first team before joining the Scottish champions for two loan stints.

He says he was swayed by Canaries’ boss Daniel Farke, via Canaries.co.uk:

“The manager was very enthusiastic when he spoke to me. He really enjoys the way I play and that’s a big boost of confidence for me. It’s good to have someone in your corner to give you the belief and opportunity to play and in return I’ll give 100% to Norwich and everyone at the Club to repay that belief.”

We doubt Roberts figured it’d take this long to get a chance at Premier League football when he left Fulham. Let’s see if he finds his offensive form at Carrow Road.
