Smith views a three-month spell at League One Yeovil as the perfect way to push himself into Chris Hughton's long term Premier League plans.
"Coming to Yeovil will help me learn my trade and hopefully one day I'll be back up there," he said.
"I've had a couple of good seasons at Norwich - with two promotions - and I played a lot of games, but I picked up an injury at the start of last season and now they've brought in a lot of new players and have a new manager. I'm still young and I've got a lot to learn. I think this is a good place to do so."
