Cheryl Minns, from Loddon, got the 21-year-old's autograph after the Canaries drew 0-0 against Chelsea on January 6 in the third round of the FA Cup.

Two days later and Miss Minns, 36, had it tattooed on her right arm - above the signature of former City midfielder Bradley Johnson.

She said Mr Maddison promised her a pair of signed boots after she told him she intended to get his autograph permanently etched onto her skin.

True to his word, Mr Maddison has now provided Miss Minns with a pair of football boots.

Speaking about her tattoo, Miss Minns, who is a Norwich City season ticket holder, said: 'The tattoo is my personal choice, the same as the one from Bradley Johnson. These are memories for me.'
