Norwich signing Bennett keen to make up for Wolves failure

Former Brighton winger Elliot Bennett is determined to make the most of his move to Norwich City.

Bennett concedes he wants to prove himself at the top level after missing out with Wolves.

"It's an unbelievable opportunity for me to fight for a place in the team which will be playing in the Premier League," he told the club's official website. "I like the mentality at Norwich City that has seen them get back-to-back promotions and I'm grateful to Paul Lambert for giving me the chance to be part of what's happening at the club."

Once again, manager Paul Lambert appears to have found the key to the hunger that he demands of his players - Telford-born Bennett began his career at Wolves, but never made it at Molineux and had loan spells at Crewe and Bury, where he spent 18 months.

"I didn't make it through at Wolves, which was my home town club, and Brighton gave me the opportunity and I'm grateful for that," said Bennett. "Now I'm just really excited about the chance to try and help Norwich in the Premier League."
