Teenage Irish midfielder Philip Lowry is expected to join Norwich City for training next week - unless he can persuade City to give him a rest.

Lowry, who plays for Institute in the IFA Premiership in Northern Ireland, has been training with Leicester City, having helped his country's Elite Squad to victory in the Milk Cup tournament. The Irish League season opens against Glenavon tomorrow.

"I'll speak to (manager) John Gregg to organise my trip to Norwich," he said. "I have heard they possibly want me to go over on Sunday, but to be honest I wouldn't mind a little bit of a break, because the last few weeks have been a bit crazy."

Lowry reportedly impressed Leicester boss Nigel Pearson, so much so that he was asked to play for the first team in a training game.
