Norwich snap up Newcastle's Pattison

Norwich have signed hotly-tipped Newcastle youngster Matthew Pattison on loan until the end of the year.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who made 12 appearances for the Magpies last season, caught the eye of Canaries boss Glenn Roeder while at the helm at St James' Park.

"When I was the Academy manager at Newcastle, I was told that Matty Pattison would be the best player to come through into the first team and when I saw him play I was not disappointed," Roeder told the club's official website.

"When I became manager at Newcastle I used him both as a substitute and starting a number of games.

"He's a tough lad, the right sort for where we are now - he does not know what it is to lose," he added.
