Norwich City have again allowed left back Harry Toffolo to leave Carrow Road on loan, this time linking up with Sky Bet League One side Doncaster Rovers. The 22-year-old links with up with Darren Ferguson’s side until January 3rd 2018 and is the fifth loan move of his career.

Toffolo spent the entirety of last season in League One with Scunthorpe United, helping them path their way to the end of season play-offs. In recent years, he has spent time with Swindon Town, Peterborough United and Rotherham United as well. He’ll be looking to impress enough for Canaries boss Daniel Farke to include him in his first team plans in the future.

Speaking on the news of his latest signing, Ferguson believes he’ll settle in quickly, and is the perfect replacement for the injury Danny Andrew,

“Harry has good experience of League One, he has played over 50 games in the competition, he was one of the targets alongside Danny Andrew during the summer.

“We worked quickly to get Harry in and we knew how long Danny would be out for, we felt we needed someone in that left side of the defence and he ticks a lot of boxes with his experience in League One and he is used to playing a lot of different formations.”

Toffolo did enjoy some game time in pre-season under new manager Farke, but an injury soon left him on the sidelines. The signing of James Husband, who became the outright first choice left back under the German coach, reduced Toffolo’s chances of first team action meaning this loan move suits all concerned.
