Dean Smith is set to bring star midfielder Todd Cantwell out of the cold after he sealed his speedy return to management with Norwich.

Attacking midfielder Cantwell will be among the players at Smith’s disposal.
Cantwell was one of Norwich’s most prominent players in his last Premier League campaign, but was frozen under Daniel Farke, training and playing for the Under-23s. He last appeared in Norwich two months ago.
But the 23-year-old’s exile has ended after Norwich’s change of address.
Smith said: ‘It’s been a whirlwind seven days, but I’m very happy to be back and working for Norwich.
“There has been wonderful work at this club for the last four and a half years. It’s Craig and I’s job to continue and improve that in order to survive in the Premier League. ‘
