Loan signing Matt Jarvis says he is ready and raring to go after joining Norwich City from Premier League rivals West Ham United.

The 29-year-old winger has played in five Europa League qualifiers and featured as a substitute in three top-flight matches for the Hammers already this season.

He hopes that will allow him to hit the ground running in a Canaries shirt – once the current international break is out of the way.

'I was back in on June 22 with West Ham and I played all of the Europa League qualifying matches for them,' Jarvis said. 'I'm fully fit and I've been involved in pretty much all the games so far this season

'I played 60 minutes at Carrow Road in pre-season too (in a 1-0 friendly win for the Hammers) – I'm in good condition and ready to go. It's a fresh start for me, it's a chance for me to get back to playing games and back to my best.'
