City's attacking midfielder answered 10 quickfire questions about his career and time at the club. You can read the full transcript below:
Q: What do your teammates call you?
A: Quite a lot of them call me Toddy. Todd is quite a short name so I get away with just being called Todd most of the time.
Q: Who is the biggest character in the dressing room?
A: For me, Kenny McLean. He's always laughing and joking around. So probably him.

A: Probably scoring against my boyhood club Arsenal in the Premier League. I celebrated. I ran over to my family and where they were sat in the stadium. It was a special moment.
Q: Does your squad number have any significance?
A: As a kid growing up, Thierry Henry number 14 was my idol. So when it became vacant here I jumped at it.
Q: Who is the best player you have ever played with?
A: I'd probably say Trent Alexander-Arnold at England. Even at a younger age, he was a top, top player. Obviously, there are some great players here but we'll be here a while if I start listing them.
Q: Your best friend in football?
A: My closest friend would probably be Jamal Lewis. I spent a lot of time with him, came through the academy and been on a bit of a rollercoaster with him. So I'd say Jamal. I still speak to him regularly.
Q: Your favourite piece of memorabilia from your career?
A: I'd probably say swapping shirts with Kevin De Bruyne at the end of last season. It was a bit surreal, especially the fact that he asked for mine as well. It was me that instigated it but he took mine. I don't know if he wiped his boots with.
Q: Don't you wear odd coloured boots?
A: It's not the design of the boot. I had a little bit of a toe problem and one was fitting slightly better. They are actually the same boot but just different colours so that's just a bit of a mix and match at the moment.
Q: What would you be if you weren't a footballer?
A: I honestly don't know. I hate that question because I don't know. There are many things I could have done, I would have maybe explored other sports. I quite enjoy tennis and badminton. I also played cricket a lot when I was younger. Or maybe the head of media at the football club, something like that.
Q: What was your initiation song at Norwich?
A: It was quite a while ago. It was Love Yourself by Justin Bieber. It's my go-to song, I know all the words and used to sing it with my mum. The first ten seconds were brutal but when I got up there I felt quite confident.
Q: What makes Norwich so special?
A: It's part of my DNA really. I've been here since I was a kid. I've had the ups and the downs and hopefully we are on the verge on another up. Being from here makes it so special to me.
