Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is delighted with their signing of Leeds United winger Robert Snodgrass.

The Scotland international was again a creative influence during the Canaries' best spells following his impressive debut at MK Dons prior to the weekend, and Hughton is convinced he can inflict plenty of damage on Premier League defences.

"We played Robert in a position he has played before and he did it very well," Hughton told the Pink 'Un. "Predominantly in his career he would have played more games on the right-hand side of midfield, but it was something I wanted to have a look at and a new shape.

"I was delighted. I know he can play that role because he is a good player and he has played there before - he is a player that likes to get on the ball but he will work for the team as well in that position. Certainly he is a player that can play there for us."
