New signing Aidan Fitzpatrick is looking to work on all aspects of his game as he tries to progress at Norwich City. The 18-year-old has now been snapped up from Patrick Thistle after the Canaries failed to land him during last season’s January transfer window, with a reported fee of £350,000 paid for the winger.
Clubs such as Rangers and Celtic were thought to be keen on the Scotland Under-18 ace but he has moved to Carrow Road with Norwich now back in the Premier League. The youngster bagged seven goals from 30 games in all competitions for the Jags last term and it seemed inevitable that he would be seeking pastures new before the start of the next campaign.
His displays north of the border caught the eye and Fitzpatrick was delighted with how he performed in 2018-2019. “I was very pleased with it,” he said. “I’d been there since I was 11 and played right from the Under-13s to the reserve squad, then had that one season (at reserve level). “Then I had a good pre-season and thankfully it kicked on from there and I had probably the best season that I’ve had playing football.”
Now in the big time, the wide man will have to push on even more to make his mark and he will do everything possible to give himself the best chance of success. “In the gym I want to get bigger and stronger, get fitter, and to work on the defensive side of things, but obviously I need to work on almost everything,” he added. “But that will come, the main thing is probably my defensive side and to get bigger physically.”
