Norwich City defender David Stephens has joined League Two Lincoln City on loan for the rest of the season.

A product of the Academy, 18-year-old Stephens is in his first season as a professional at Carrow Road. He made his first team debut, and only senior appearance so far, as a second-half substitute in City's 1-0 win at Gillingham in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in October.

The defender has made 10 appearances for the reserves and played 14 games for the youth team this season.

Lincoln City are managed by former Norwich City striker Chris Sutton who was also a Celtic team-mate of City manager Paul Lambert.
