Celtic defender John Kennedy is moving to Norwich City on a six-month loan.

Preston were also interested but Kennedy has agreed a move to Coca-Cola Championship rivals Norwich, where he will be reunited with former Celtic team-mates Mark Fotheringham and David Marshall.

Kennedy said: "I'm looking forward to the challenge of being at Norwich and lining up with a couple of familiar faces in David Marshall and Mark Fotheringham.

"I would like to thank Motherwell and Preston and their managers, Mark McGhee and Alan Irvine, who have shown interest in me."

Kennedy is looking for games following an eight-month lay-off with a knee injury.

That came after a three-year spell on the sidelines after the centre-back's knee was seriously damaged on his Scotland debut by Romania striker Vio Ganea.
