Norwich City boss Paul Lambert happy with keeper options

John Ruddy
Ruddy kept 11 clean sheets for promotion-winning Norwich last season

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert has said he has no concerns over the depth of his goalkeeping options.

Canaries number one John Ruddy is currently backed-up by 20-year-old Declan Rudd and 18-year-old Jed Steer, who is on trial with Yeovil.

And Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk he is not looking to bolster his complement of keepers.

"Hopefully nothing happens to John but if Declan has to go in then I don't have any worries," he said.

"If something happens with John I may look to do something but at this minute I don't have a problem.

"You're never sure until you give somebody a chance, Declan's done great with us.

"He'd probably have liked to have played more but he's only young."

Ruddy, 24, featured 45 times in City's promotion-winning campaign last season, with Rudd stepping in on just three occasions.

Meanwhile Steer played for Yeovil in Saturday's 1-0 friendly win over Bristol City, with the Glovers likely to be looking at the possibility of taking the England Under-19 international on loan.

Lambert added his seventh signing of the summer on Friday, with defender .

And the Carrow Road chief said the right-back's arrival meant he was content that all areas of his squad are at full strength.

"We needed somebody there," the Scot explained.

"That's us just about at 25 [in the squad] now, you've got to pick 11 lads from that.

"We need a squad and we're going to need everybody through the season."
