Norwich City hot prospect Rossi Jarvis is looking to use his loan move to Torquay United as a stepping stone towards the first team at Carrow Road.

Jarvis has played just once for the Canaries this season and the 18-year-old admitted that amount of playing time is simply not good enough if his career is to progress at the rate he, and manager Peter Grant, want.

Torquay have offered Jarvis and fellow academy product Matthew Halliday the chance of first team football with both looking to use the month on loan at Plainmoor as a chance to force themselves to the forefront of Grant's thoughts.

"My future lies with Norwich," insisted Jarvis. "It's just a case of going down there and getting some games. I've only played one match for the first team and then a few for the youth team then a few for the reserves.

"I need to get some games under my belt considering I'm at such a young age. Playing one game a month is awful really, especially as I'm only 18 years old as well. It gets very frustrating - it just seems like I'm training and then at the end of the week I haven't got a game to look forward to and that's why this month will do me good."

Grant has impressed upon Jarvis to grasp this opportunity with both hands and the youngster is relishing the prospect of helping the League Two side get out of their current predicament at the bottom of the Football League.

"The gaffer said it's going to be a good move for me to get some games and get my match sharpness up and then come back here and fight for my place.

"I think there's going to be six games in the month so hopefully I'll play all six and get a bit of match sharpness under my belt. I'm really looking forward to it."

Jarvis admitted it has been frustrating playing so few games this season and when called upon the youngster has often been a victim of his own versatility, playing in all positions across the back four as well as in central midfield.
