GRAHAM DORRANS, the West Bromwich Albion midfielder, is to join Alex Neil's Norwich City on a month's loan this week.

The 27-year-old Scotland internationalist, who was close to moving to Carrow Road during the transfer window, will complete the temporary switch on Thursday.

"I'm glad to finally get it sorted," said Dorrans. "I came here on the last day of the transfer window and for whatever reason it didn't work out. I've been in discussions ever since then, so although I was frustrated it never got done on the final day, hopefully now I can add to a good squad.

"I spoke to the manager and a couple of the boys, and they had nothing but nice things to say about the club.

"The manager and everyone here is working to get this club back to the Premier League, and I'm excited to be here.

"With the fans right behind us, hopefully we can do that as we've got some big games coming up. I'm looking forward to getting started, and to helping us push on."

Dorrans could make his Canaries debut against Watford on Saturday.
