Ryan Bennett may have been loaned back to Championship club Peterborough, but the England Under-21 defender is looking forward to a return to parent club Norwich at the end of the month and top flight football.

"As soon as I knew the interest from Norwich was full-on, I turned the car around and drove there. I did not get back to Peterborough until four in the morning, but it was all worth it," said Bennett, capped by England Under-21s against Norway in October.

He added on Canaries Player: "The manager has taken every club he has been at forwards, and has continued to do that at Norwich.

"For me to go there and play under a manager like him, I am sure it will make me a better player to achieve the level I want.

"The Premier League is the top league in the world, everyone wants to play in it and hopefully I will get my chance.

"Norwich are a close bunch of lads, so hopefully I can fit in well.

"There are a lot of good players there and it is up to me to work hard, take a chance when I get it and make a name for myself there."
