Norwich City

Norwich City have handed a one-year professional contract to second year academy scholar Matt Ball.

The 18-year-old midfielder has yet to make a senior appearance but was on the bench for the 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace in October.

Ball, a Northern Ireland Under-19 international, scored 13 goals in 28 academy appearances this season.

"It's a chance for him to see if he can handle playing with the pros," boss Paul Lambert told the club websiteexternal-link.

"Every time he has trained with us he has not let us down at all."
