'He is 19 and has everything in front of him' - Hughton backs Redmond to shine

The 55-year-old believes the young winger has the potential to excel at Norwich, especially as he is eager to continue his development as an attacking threat

Chris Hughton believes winger Nathan Redmond has a bright future ahead of him at Norwich City.

11/4 Norwich are 11/4 with PaddyPower to beat Tottenham in their next Premier League clash
Norwich sit just one point clear of the drop zone, having won only one of their last 11 league fixtures.

However, manager Hughton feels teenage winger Redmond - who has returned to the Norwich starting XI in their last two games - has proven a bright spot in the Canaries' campaign.

"We have to be solid and difficult to beat but it is impossible to pull that off without having an attacking threat," he told The Pink 'Un.

"You have to relieve pressure and give yourself a chance to score goals.

"Nathan perhaps lacks that end product at times but he gives us a really good outlet. That is there to see and he keeps getting in those positions. He is 19 and he has everything in front of him.

"He would have possibly played more games than even he would have envisaged when he first came here at the start of this season.

"That is all good for his development and he is gaining great experience. He is only a young man and there is probably no-one at the club who works harder on the training field on his finishing but this is a great learning curve for him and he is so enthusiastic to improve."

Norwich return to Premier League action on Sunday when Tottenham visit Carrow Road.
