New City boss Peter Grant today reveals he wants to build a Premiership home on foundations laid at Norwich City by axed predecessor Nigel Worthington.

In the first of his regular exclusive columns for the Evening News, the new man in charge at Carrow Road says what has been left behind by Worthington means there is not much to turn round at the club.

But the Scot will leave “no stone unturned” in his bid to return the Canaries to the Premiership promise land.

“There is not a lot to put right thanks to Nigel's legacy,” Grant says in his new column. “He laid the foundations and I just want to build the house on that.”

However, the former Celtic star, who says he is “a very, very determined person” has issued a warning to his Norwich City stars that if they do not buy into his team ethic then they will leave Carrow Road.

“I have inherited some outstanding individual players, but for me the team is everything,” he writes. “The individuals have to buy into that team ethic and if anyone doesn't feel they want to be part of the team they won't be here.

“I won't be afraid to make changes when we are winning and I won't be waiting for people to make mistakes. If you wait until you are losing to make changes, it's too late.”
