Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand is to return to Norwich on a half-season loan deal from Stamford Bridge.

“I can't tell you how happy I am to secure the signature of Ryan Bertrand again to come back here on loan until the first of January,” said City boss Glenn Roeder today.

“There is a possibility, after speaking to Frank Arnesen, that he will be able to stay the whole year. I think Chelsea are doing the right thing, covering their backs in case they needed him on the first of January because he is an exciting young player. But the intentions are that he might be able to stay the whole year.”

“I'm delighted to be returning to Carrow Road and very excited at the prospect of starting where I left off last season,” said Bertrand, who made 18 league appearances for City.

Roeder said he was satisfied with his progress in the transfer market to date, with Sammy Clingan and Wes Hoolahan both having joined.
