Norwich City finished the 2017/18 Championship season in 14th placed, after finishing 8th last campaign.
The club went through an overhaul last summer, with a host of changes on and off the pitch.
Within this change, Norwich made a number of loan signings during the season – a route most clubs in Norwich’s position look to make the most of.
Angus Gunn and Harrison Reed were both signed on loan in the summer, whilst Marcus Edwards and Moritz Leitner joined on short-term deals in January.
Here is how we graded their showings for Norwich City – using the classic A-F grading system.
Angus Gunn: A
An inspired loan signing. Norwich signed Gunn from Manchester City, despite having never played a minute of senior football, and he excelled in the Championship.
Gunn never felt like a loan player, with his passion for the club already there – having supported the club his entire life – and his performances on the pitch were exceptional.
He came third in the club’s official player of the season voting and set a new club-record for consecutive clean sheets in the league.
Harrison Reed: A
Reed was signed from Southampton at the start of the season, with many City fans excited to see what he could bring to the midfield.
However, it was what he brought to right-back that impressed me.
Reed looked shaky at times in midfield, but was sublime when he was moved to right-wing back or right-back.
The Englishman is still unlikely to break into the Southampton team next season and may look at a return to Norwich.
Moritz Leitner: C+
The only thing that blighted Leitner’s loan was injuries, which disrupted the backend of his time with Norwich.
The on-loan Augsburg midfielder impressed in midfield when he did get the chance to shine, controlling the midfield from a deep-lying position.
His passion and work ethic warmed him to the Carrow Road crowd, and he is another who City fans will be hoping can return for next season.
Marcus Edwards: F
A complete failure, there is no two ways about it. Reports claimed he was consistently late to training and team meetings, Farke mentioned several times that his attitude was not good enough and he only made one substitute appearance before his loan was terminated.
