Norwich boss Smith yet to consider Jan plans

Norwich City boss Dean Smith is yet to sit down with director of football Stuart Webber to deliver his verdict on the squad he inherited ahead of the upcoming January window.

Smith has already batted away speculation touting him with transfer interest in Hull City's Jacob Greaves, while a number of his former Aston Villa players have been linked.

"I spoke to Stuart when I first came into the club and said let me and Shakey (Craig Shakespeare) hit the ground running for three or four weeks and then we'll sit down and give you our honest opinions of where we see the club at the moment," he said.

“We're still a couple of weeks or so away from sitting down with Stuart and talking about that. But as I said before, I've been happy with the application and the quality of the squad so far.

“I think we're a competitive club already. We've got a couple of injuries at the moment as well so on the whole it's quite a healthy squad. We've done some 11 versus 11 work and had to leave players off the pitch at the moment.

"There's a number of games to play before we even get to January so we're just concerned about these matches at the moment."
