Jonny Howson has completed his move to Middlesbrough, Norwich City have announced
The fee is ‘undisclosed’ but thought to be in the region of £6m. Jonny made 188 appearances and scored 24 goals in a five and a half year stay at Carrow Road.
Sporting Director Stuart Webber told canaries.co.uk: ‘Jonny, via his agent, made it very clear during my first week in the job he didn`t want to be here and wanted to move back to the north.
‘We spoke about a new contract but he was insistent. Jonny is a good guy who was great for this club but sometimes you have to accept it becomes about getting the best deal for the football club.’
I imagine that Mr Webber has put that out there, just to show that the club wanted to keep him.
Anyway, all the best for the future, Jonny.
