SWINDON Town had a busy end to the transfer window this evening.

The County Ground side announced the re-signing of defender Jack Stephens on loan until the end January minutes before the window slammed shut.

Then at 11.20pm it was confirmed that Louis Thompson was on his way out of SN1 to Championship side Norwich City.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who penned a three-year deal at Carrow Road in move which could potentially net Town a seven-figure fee, will return to his hometown club for the remainder of the campaign on loan.

The youngster said: “I'm extremely proud. To come to a club of Norwich City's stature is a fantastic achievement for me.

“I'm really looking forward to the challenge of coming here after my loan finishes at Swindon.

"It's a massive club with a huge fan base, there's not a single negative thing to say about them. Hopefully they can do well this year and challenge for a Premier League place."

Canaries boss Neil Adams added: "We've got quite a lot of cover in midfield but Louis is a player we've identified with plenty of potential, so it's best suited for him to stay with his current club for now and we'll continue to monitor his progress."

Thompson was handed his professional debut by Swindon as a 17-year-old back in 2012, and he established himself in Mark Cooper's team last year, featuring 35 times in all competitions, scoring twice.
