Although establishing himself at United is Norwood‚Äôs long-term goal, he won‚Äôt be disappointed if he‚Äôs loaned out again when his current deal expires on 2 January.
‚ÄúYou learn so much,‚ÄĚ he told United Review. ‚ÄúAll of the young lads love going out on loan because we end up bettering ourselves during the time away.‚ÄĚ
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 he‚Äôs confident his time will come.
‚ÄúThe 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.
‚ÄúSticking 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... I‚Äôm really improving."
