Arsenal future star Henri Lansbury has signed to Norwich City on a 28-day emergency loan.

The young midfielder found success previously on loan to fellow Championship team Watford, scoring five times in 39 appearances and continually being praised for his performance.

Norwich City boos Paul Lambert commented on the loan of the 20-year old Arsenal starlet stating:

 

"I'm delighted Arsenal have agreed to let Henri come here.

 

"We have been hit with injuries and midfield is one of the areas we need strengthening. Henri gives us more options in there which is important."

 

Lansbury has found it difficult to break into Arsene Wenger’s first team, only featuring six times for the Gunners, with one Premier League appearance.

 

Lansbury has also previously impressed on loan at Scunthorpe United in February 2009. During his loan he managed to score four goals in 13 starts for the Iron.

"I saw him when he was at Watford and Scunthorpe and he's a quality young player, very positive in his play," Lambert added.

 

The Emirates star also received his first England Under-21 start last week against Germany. His debut was a success, with a strange twist towards the end as Lansbury was called into goal after Luke Steele received a red.

The opportunity to play first team football will no doubt aid Lansbury in his quest to gain a starting berth in the Arsenal first XI.
