Norwich manager Lambert snaps up Naughton on loan

Norwich City confirmed the signing of Tottenham defender Kyle Naughton on a season-long loan deal last night.

The 22-year-old full-back moved to White Hart Lane from Sheffield United in 2009 and has nine England Under-21 caps. He spent last season on loan at Championship side Leicester and has now signed for newly-promoted Norwich to continue his development.

The Norwich manager, Paul Lambert, said: "We're delighted to have secured Kyle's services for the season. He's a quality player who will come in and give the current group a hand as well as providing more healthy competition for places."
