“He was excellent for us last season and I thought he was outstanding. Hopefully, he can reproduce that form for the month he is with us.

“He was very consistent, he got forward and he's got a lovely left foot. He was an integral part of us staying up. He fitted in with the squad and that was a key point in bringing him back.

“We know him and he knows us. He is only here for 28 days but he won't need time to settle in because he is used to everybody and that was an important part in the decision.

“I think he has found it difficult to break into a very good Norwich side and he wants to play. We are delighted to have him.

“We are without a recognised left-back due to Warren's suspension and felt we needed to get the basics right and needed a solid foundation.”
