Marshall signs Norwich loan deal

Celtic and Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall has completed his loan move to Championship side Norwich until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has started only two games this season as manager Gordon Strachan has favoured Polish keeper Artur Boruc as his number one.

"England is a great place to play football and I'm looking forward to it," Marshall told Norwich's website.

"Artur has done really great so my chances have been limited this season."

Marshall lost his place last season following the 5-0 defeat by Artmedia Bratislava and a 4-4 draw with Motherwell.

He said then he did not want to spend another campaign on the bench and wanted first-team action.

I grew up watching Peter Grant play for Celtic so I know how passionate he is

"To get down here and hopefully get a few games under my belt is great and I want to repay the manager's faith he's showed in me so far," Marshall said.

Marshall was praised for his first outing in 2004, when he appeared as a half-time substitute against Barcelona in a 1-0 Uefa Cup win.

He featured in the return leg at the Nou Camp and made a string of superb saves to help Celtic secure a 0-0 draw and progress to the quarter finals.

But he has been unable to displace Boruc in the Celtic line-up this season and said he was looking forward to working with Norwich boss Peter Grant.

"I grew up watching Peter Grant play for Celtic so I know how passionate he is," said Marshall.

"I've been speaking to him over the last couple of days and he's shown me he wants to get Norwich back to where they belong."
