Be interesting to see if he is considered to be squad player at PL level or Champs level, I suspect the latter.
Personally I don't think he's any higher standard than the likes of Korey Smith, Cameron McGeehan and Tom Adeyemi and will spend his career in the Championship or League One.

Or for an older example.... Adrian Forbes and Chris Llewellyn.

If he wasn't a local lad and we'd signed him for £2.5m you'd possibly be a bit disappointed. I mean.... we paid that for Sergi Canos, who is simply more gifted (I'd quite like him back to be honest!).

Obviously a full season out on loan to the Championship and I might upgrade him, he might boss that league and come back looking 'ready', but can't help but feel right now that having one year left on his deal his a bigger risk for him than it is for us.

Still.... a decent player for our academy to churn out, and nice to see local lads making it in professional football at any level as Norwich doesn't produce all that many (outfield players in particular).

Never did understand all the raving about him, sure he had a good game or two, but that was about it. Imo he's not up to scratch even for the Championship, like the players you mention Canaryboy.

Jarrold's signed up apparently.
I can't confirm if they're taking the 3rd striker role.........

Not completely writing him off but think he has work to do before he's a solid Championship player yet alone Premier League... Sensible wage + season long loan would my plan for him and that's probably Webber's too.
I think Cantwell's path should be to sign a new deal, go out on loan for a season, if we stay up next season we'll flog him and if we go down we'll use a hopefully improved player in the Championship.
Cantwell is in danger of running down his contract whilst being stuck in the U23's for a year.... A loan is for a players development and we may decide we don't want to subsidise his wages for him to put himself in the shop window if we get nothing back at the end of it.
