Norwich City striker Ryan Jarvis last night admitted his future lies away from Carrow Road.

The Fakenham-born 21-year-old - currently on loan at League Two Notts County - feels he is surplus to requirements under Glenn Roeder and is already planning for life after Norwich when his contract runs out in the summer.

“I don't really see a future for me at Norwich as I haven't really been involved there for the last few years,” he told County's official web site.

“Maybe next year will be a fresh start for me. I am out of contract in the summer, but I am concentrating on my career at the moment and that means scoring goals and performing well for Notts County.

“That is what I was brought here to do, and I am determined to do it. You could say in some ways that it is my shop window, and I'll be working my socks off.

“I don't see any reason why my future can't be here. Notts is a good club and if I do well and the manager wants me beyond the end of the season I would certainly consider it. Right now though, I just want to concentrate on my football and perform and get some goals.”

Jarvis' only start under Roeder came in the FA Cup replay defeat at Bury when he was replaced at half-time. The Canaries' academy graduate has scored five goals in 38 senior appearances for the club since making his debut in 2003. Jarvis earned a Championship winners' medal in 2004 before announcing his Premiership arrival with a spectacular strike in a 2-1 home defeat against Liverpool - but he ended that season on loan at Colchester. Jarvis has also had spells at Orient and Kilmarnock earlier this season before his New Year Meadow Lane switch.

“I have been at Norwich a long time but I have never really had a run in the team,” he said. “To be honest I wanted to get away and play because I don't want to be sitting in the reserves. I was excited to come and play for Notts County. It is good to be here until the end of the campaign.”

Jarvis has yet to open his account in four games for the League Two strugglers but County boss Ian McParland is backing the youngster to fire in tandem with former academy team mate Danny Crow. Crow scored a weekend winner against Chester after arriving on loan from Peterborough.

“Ryan and Danny played together at Norwich, and I think they have the potential to link up well.”
