Norwich midfielder Tony Andreu has been released by the club, as confirmed in an official statement.

It was reported by the Coventry Telegraph that Andreu has agreed to sign for the League Two outfit until the end of the season, with that now looking to be a permanent transfer.

Andreu finally leaves Norwich, ending a rather disappointing stay with the Canaries.

Andreu had one year left to run on his City contract after signing a three-and-a-half year deal in 2015, with Norwich paying out the final year of his deal.

The Frenchman joined for £1m from Hamilton in January 2015, becoming one of Alex Neil’s first signings for Norwich – alongside Graham Dorrans from West Brom.

In his two-and-a-half years at the club thus far Andreu has amassed only eight appearances in all competitions – failing to score.

The 29-year-old is said to have had interest from other sides, including Oxford United, but Coventry have moved quickly to secure a deal.

Andreu impressed last season for Dundee United in Scotland, scoring 13 goals from midfield.
