Miquel signs a three year contract at Norwich with an option to extend it for a further 12 months. He has been on loan for a season at Leicester as an Arsenal player and played on 5 Premier league games for Arsenal. The club has paid £1.5 million for the defender.
It’s brilliant for me to come here, and I want to try and get in the team as soon as I can to help Norwich get back to the Premier League. I had to move on from Arsenal and Norwich have given me the chance to prove myself. The Championship is a tough league, but I know what it’s about and I enjoyed it last season. I’m really looking forward to getting started.

I’m extremely proud. To come to a club of Norwich City’s stature is a fantastic achievement for me. I’m really looking forward to the challenge of coming here after my loan finishes at Swindon. It’s a massive club with a huge fan base, there’s not a single negative thing to say about them. Hopefully they can do well this year and challenge for a Premier League place
Norwich signs Hooiveld from Southampton on a season long loan contract. The dutch international has made 77 appearances for the former club.
I’m very excited about this move. I have played at Norwich and I was very impressed with the surroundings and the atmosphere. It was a full house then and again last Saturday when I saw the Bournemouth game
The Canaries series of consecutive victories comes to an end when they meet Bournemouth who cancels an early lead given to them by Lewis Grabban in the 15th minute. Callum Wilson levels the score for the opponents in the second minute of first half extra time. Adams:
It’s disappointing because we want to be winning all our games here – but we have got 10 points from our first five games and if we keep that record up throughout the season we will be right up there.
Lewis Grabban puts his side ahead in the 24th minute of the game with a header. Norwich shade early possession and Grabban misses out on two more good chances with Ipswich just coming close through a 29th minute wide shot by David Goldrich. McCathy:
It was a hard-fought game, changed by the goal which allowed them to try and catch us on the break which they nearly did a couple of times, though Murphy’s chance was gilt-edged, he knows he should have scored.
