Norwich boss looking to dip into January transfer market

Norwich City manager Paul Lambert has indicated he may look at making some new signings when the January transfer market opens.

The Canaries are surprisingly sitting eighth on the Premier League table but that won't stop Lambert strengthening his squad as he looks to remain in the top flight following back-to-back promotions.

"January has been spoken about; we might need a hand - it can give you a lift," Lambert told the Norwich Evening News.

"We made a decision at the start that we would bring in lads we roughly knew, until we got a foothold and then see what happens.

"I needed lads who I knew and who knew the British game," added Lambert. "It helps them get to know each other.

"If you're a foreign lad coming into a dressing room, I know from experience it can take you a little bit to get used to a different culture and a different way.

"We have to try and be in and around it in January. If we can add to it then we will, but that's a lot easier said than done because you tend to find prices go sky high in January. But we need a hand."
