Norwich City boss Chris Hughton believes Ricky van Wolfswinkel can make a similar impact to what Christian Benteke enjoyed with Aston Villa last season.

The Dutch has joined the Canaries from Sporting Lisbon.

Hughton said: "We hope he's the man. The test is can he do it in a very tough division. We've seen scorers at Aston Villa like Benteke when he arrived, and Grant Holt got 15 goals for us in the season before last."
