Scoring five goals at Carrow Road has given fresh momentum to Jamar Loza's Norwich City career and the young striker now wants to go out on loan again to prove what he can do.

The 21-year-old struck five times as City's under-21s thrashed Southampton 7-2 last night, in front of watching first-team manager Alex Neil.

'All I can do is score goals, keep my head down and train hard and just impress the people that are here,' Loza said after the victory.

The Jamaica international played twice for League Two club Stevenage in October and five times for Yeovil in League One last season, without finding the back of the net for either club.

The speedy striker did score a late goal for City in a 2-2 draw at Huddersfield last season but otherwise only has one senior goal to his name, in a League Two match for Southend in March 2014.

However his memorable night against the Saints took his under-21 tally to seven goals in 10 games for the season and Loza is keen for another loan chance when the transfer window opens in January.

'Hopefully I can get out on loan again for a longer period of time and try and play in the leagues and score some more goals there,' he added.

'They didn't go as well as I would have liked playing-wise and scoring-wise but every loan is a big experience for me, whether I'm playing or not, because you learn so much just from being around senior professionals and how they go about their business every day.'
