Norwich City have confirmed that James Vaughan has joined Championship side Huddersfield Town on loan until the end of the season.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The 24-year-old arrived at Carrow Road from Everton in May 2011 for an undisclosed fee, but injury restricted him to just one start and four substitute appearances in the league.

The striker had been in impressive form for Norwich City during pre-season scoring at Peterbrough and bagging a brace against Hertha Berlin.

James Vaughan said: “It has been a very quick turnaround but hopefully I will be involved in some way tomorrow.

“I am here to play first team football so the sooner the better really. I want to help the club do well and on a personal front score some goals.

“I didn’t want to go out on a short term deal; I have done that before and I didn’t really want to do it again. With the loan being season long it gives me time to bed in, get to know the players and then hopefully push on earn a starting place and help the team progress.”

Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson told the club’s official website: “He is a different type of striker to the ones we currently have at the club and crucially he has plenty of pace.

“He is a determined character with a high work rate and he is a player with something to prove. He has played at this level before and is comfortable at it, which is perfect for us.

“He has had some problems with injuries in the past but he has had a good pre-season behind him and comes to us fully fit. We have agreed a sensible deal with Norwich to protect us and I look forward to working with James over the coming months.”

  • Back from Summer hols to transfer nonsense! JV on loan - looking to get Argentinians in from Anderlecht - quality defenders sent out on loan - and no strikers coming in. On last night's performance Jonny Sutton would do a better job than half the strikers we already have. I hate to say it, but without one we will be relegated along with Reading and Southampton. May be this is why Ashley parted company with CH?

  • Thinks . . . . . thinks . . . is the proposed idea, to do a touch of the Iberian - dispense with an 'out'n'out' striker. A midfield, attacking combo? Daft? Probably, it's just that we seem to be amassing a vast array of midfielders, who do have a proven eye for goal. Just a thought, anyway, thinking of the Ajax sides of the 70s.

  • Vaughan to Huddersfield......the pre-curser to Rhodes to Norwich??? We can be hoped. All we are left with is an over weight Holt, only good for an hour a game. A willing, but lightweight Jackson, and Morrison, who has lost the faith of the supporters. I assume Martin and at least one back 4, (Barnet) will go out on loan. We are becoming over stocked in the midfield. We are in for a torrid season without a 20 goal striker!!!

  • NCFC must know summat that we don't. The Horse + more- reasons- to- shop- @- Morisons are both basically battering-rams ( Morison is a particularly ineffective battering ram). As others have said, we need a quick, tricky guy playing off the big centre-forward. Can we put Kevin Reeves in a time machine? Failing that, I do hope there's a deal already done + a fast forward is on his way to The Carra as we speak..??? 4-4-2 on Satday please Hoots !

  • We all know Holt can cause some problems to defenders, and Jackson can be a handful. The problem is the formation we're playing, in pre season and in our first game we seem to lost our attacking mentality. But I suspect we will bring in another striker and hopefully go out there tomorrow and try and win the game.

  • While Vaughan has only had a few games in City colours, he's had an impact in all of them. I've enjoyed watching him and a season out on loan at a lower level is probably the best thing for him: To prove his fitness, stability, and ability. If he does, he has a bright future.

  • I had high hopes this would be his time to shine for us, but lets be honest here, he hasn't really played enough games for us to judge if he really is good, and it's probably only a matter of time before he gets injured again. Lets just hope we're bringing in another quality striker to replace him.

  • Grayson needs Vaughan as 'protection' (cover) for when Rhodes leaves. Blackburn would appear to not only be pursuing Rhodes openly, but are prepared to outbid other interested clubs. So, I can't see him coming to Norwich... unless he moves nowhere in this window, forms a good partnership with Vaughan, and both end up here.

Need a good Goal Getter. I'd like to see Holt n Morro up front tomorrow...give the QPR defenders some grief . OTBC..... IHWT

  • @Budgie. This crazy transfer activity is the name of the game, Hughton himself said things would inevitably warm-up as the window closes. Same for most clubs, as the wheeling'n'dealing comes to a head, and runs out of time. Re Tonto's mate - The Lone Ranger, oops striker? GH & SM, their moderate success in that role last season, won't be repeated. We have to learn a new dance. As I have stated repeatedly - to me it's so obvious (see Craven Cottage?) a token striker is a waste of manpower. If you want an attack, you HAVE to populate it, otherwise it's isolated, outnumbered & marginalised.

  • Is there really an issue with JV leaving on loan? We bought him and he was injured for most of last season, though he has looked good in pre season, he needs matches. I could assume from this that: 1 - he isn't in CH's plans, can't guarantee him matches therefore we don't need to replace a striker who isn't in the managers plans anyway. Or 2 - he has a season to prove himself and return a better player and we have a replacement lined up.

  • I'm no expert but a forward line comprising Messrs Holt, Morison, Martin C. and Jackson is not really of premier league status and will not cause too much concern for opposing defenders. If that is it the club management must be bonkers. Hope I am wrong.

  • Vaughan to score tomorrow,probably, and get quite a few in the coming weeks.If we are to play one striker who can do it for us, both GH and SM are big units who look better with a second forward SJ ;too small for the high ball; and CM unproven as a singleton.One week to go before the window closes so can we expect more developments.........and as an afterthought would it not be better all round if this manic transfer activity had happened at the start of pre season and not after the first game.

  • I wonder what that football manager game would make of all our changes? Personally, I think our defence is still weaker than last seasons and now our attack is certainly no better - but then our midfield looks like being far more crowded. I suppose that you could say that at least the opposition won't have much of an idea of how we're going to play our games - I just hope, that sooner rather than later we will.

  • It means if he gets a bad injury they can terminate the loan and stop paying his wages (and probably even get back a pro rata amount of any up-front fee they've paid). Doubt City get much protection at all if he gets injured - and unless we have issues with his injuries, not sure why we'd want to get rid of him. CH and him have a falling out? He's pretty much the only player to score since CH joined. More midfielders coming in and striker leaving only means one thing to me. Persisting with 5 in midfield and one up top. Brilliant! Now I finally agree with most other posters - we must sign a striker before next Friday. Here's its a certain Morocan from Hamburg.
