Norwich City chief executive Jez Moxey has insisted that the key priority for the club this season is 'promotion, promotion, and promotion'.

Speaking at the club's annual general meeting at Carrow Road tonight, Mr Moxey reiterated the board's commitment to helping the Canaries return to the Premier League - and he added manager Alex Neil had their 'total backing'.

Shareholders have been chance to quiz the board during a 45-minute Q&A session, with questions ranging from the £1.3m pay-off to former chief executive David McNally, player recruitment, and performances on the pitch.

In a presentation preceding the Q&A, Mr Moxey said: 'At the start of the season I had three main objectives: Promotion, promotion, and promotion.

'But having seen the last four games I pondered whether I should say that tonight or whether it would be crass.

'But I'm going to say it anyway. We believe the football club can be promoted. The overarching ambition this year is promotion.'

However Mr Moxey also stressed the financial challenge posed by relegation from the Premier League was 'difficult'.

He revealed that City star Jacob Murphy has signed a new four-year deal.
