Although establishing himself at United is Norwoodâ€™s long-term goal, he wonâ€™t be disappointed if heâ€™s loaned out again when his current deal expires on 2 January.
â€śYou learn so much,â€ť he told United Review. â€śAll of the young lads love going out on loan because we end up bettering ourselves during the time away.â€ť
There is a downside, of course. Norwood is yet to make his senior Reds debut and had he remained at Old Trafford this season he may have been handed an opportunity in the Carling Cup this term. But heâ€™s confident his time will come.
â€śThe manager has always put faith in youngsters. That's not going to change. I think he'd much rather bring through a player from the youth ranks than go out and buy somebody.
â€śSticking around in the Reserves this season wouldn't have done me any good. Instead, I'm experiencing life in a first-team environment, I'm playing week-in week-out... Iâ€™m really improving."
