Norwich City's 25-man squad list for the first half of the 2019-20 season has been confirmed, with the Canaries naming the maximum of 17 non-homegrown players.

The squad list of all top-flight clubs have been released following the closure of the international transfer window on Tuesday, with no changes allowed until the January transfer window.

Clubs can name no more than 17 players who do not meet the 'homegrown' criteria, defined as: "A player who, irrespective of nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21)."

So while the maximum is 17 non-homegrown, the remaining players must meet those criteria. However, City have had added flexibility as some of their first-team players qualify as under-21 and do not need to be named in the official squad to be able to play.

U21s for this season are categorised as players born on or after January 1, 1998, which means Ben Godfrey, Todd Cantwell, Jamal Lewis, Max Aarons and Adam Idah do not have to be named in the official 25-man squad.

As such, the Canaries' official Premier League squad only includes 22 players, with Sam Byram, Grant Hanley, Tim Krul, Patrick Roberts and Louis Thompson named as five homegrown players - with Thompson registered before he went out on loan to League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Below are the squad lists, as released by the Premier League, with the U21 players including the club's academy scholars.
