Norwich City boss Paul Lambert is happy to sign former Leeds United captain Jonny Howson while injured.

Howson injured his knee against Millwall on December 3 and is currently working his way back to fitness, but new manager Paul Lambert is looking at the longer-term picture.

"I think he has been brilliant for Leeds - how he has played but also being their captain brings its own demands. It's a fantastic club, Leeds," he said.

"I think he can add goals to our midfield, which I think we need and he can do that. He'll get better as a player the higher the level he goes up.

"If he does that and everything goes well, he'll be a great player for us."
