Having taken the reins on a caretaker basis late in the 2013/14 campaign, Adams was unable to prevent Norwich from slipping out of the Premier League.

He has, however, been entrusted with the task of returning them to that level and has already set about restructuring the squad.

Lewis Grabban, a proven goalscorer, has been snapped up from Bournemouth, and Adams is working hard to ensure that he is the first of many exciting new arrivals at Carrow Road.

He said in the Pink Un: “There is a transfer list, of course. I’m not going to give you any names on that.

“But I did say that goals was the priority, which is the reason Lewis became the first signing. We’ve looked at potential targets, which is what I’ve been doing virtually 24 hours a day.

“The training ground is a deserted place but I’ve been here all the time with the match analysts, who have done a fantastic job because we don’t have the opportunity to watch players in action now.

“So we’ve got to make sure we don’t just watch the goals and the good things anyone can watch online, we’ve got to go and look at the bad bits, if you like, the weaknesses.

“It’s a long, hard job but it’s an enjoyable job – particularly when you go out and feel that’s the person you want, like Lewis Grabban, and then he comes and decides this is the place he wants to play his football.

“There’s obviously a lot less of this done at academy level, because you have chief scouts and plenty of others that will recommend you players – and you get them in on trial normally, have a look at them in a game. You can do it at that level, and obviously you can’t do that at first team level.

“It’s a big part of this job, but it’s one I really enjoy. I’ve got a book in there with a million and one names and we’ve got to make sure we go and get the right ones.

“Lewis Grabban is the first person we’ve got in and spoken to, so I’m delighted he’s been impressed with what he’s seen and heard, that he likes the look of the place, and he’s keen and eager to be a Premier League player in 12 or so months’ time. That’s the objective.”

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
