New Norwich City signing Jonny Howson feels for Leeds United fans after his departure this week.

The departure of Howson, though, has proved to be a tipping point for many fans, who used Saturday's 3-1 win over Ipswich as a chance to protest against chairman Ken Bates and a perceived lack of ambition and investment.

"It makes it harder when you see a reaction like that. You realise you mean something to them," Howson said.

"I was the club captain and from the area, but it was me that was still wanting to play in the Premier League and, from the club's point of view, I would have done the same thing if I were in their shoes."
