Norris Loan Signing Confirmed
Tuesday, 30th Jul 2019 16:05
Town have confirmed the signing of Wolves goalkeeper Will Norris on loan for the season.
Norris was at Portman Road yesterday to undergo a medical and complete the formalities on the deal, however, the move couldn’t be rubber-stamped until Bartosz Bialkowski’s switch to Millwall had been confirmed.
"Ipswich is a massive club and this is a good opportunity for me," he told iFollow Ipswich.
"When my agent told me about the interest it was an easy decision to come here. I don't know any of the lads but this is where I wanted to sign.
"The club has already signed a good goalkeeper in Tomas Holy, but I'm here to battle for the starting spot and I'm looking forward to it. I'm hungry to play games and I'm eager to get going."
Watford-born Norris started his career in non-league with the likes of Northwood, Hatfield and Royston before joining Cambridge United in 2012.
After spells back on loan with Royston, Norris, who is 6ft 3in tall, established himself at Cambridge where he made 93 senior appearances before moving to Wolves in July 2017 for an undisclosed fee.
Since his switch to Molineux Norris, who has two years left on his Wolves deal, has made only one Championship start and one brief Premier League sub appearance on the final day of last season, in addition to six starts in cup competitions.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
