Norwich City's former FA Youth Cup winning defender Kyle McFadden is not bitter at his Carrow Road exit as he looks to rebuild his career in the Football League.
The 20-year-old was one of a number of players released earlier this summer, after making his first team debut at the start of last season under former boss and mentor Neil Adams.
McFadden has trained with League Two Wycombe since his departure and is poised for a trial with a League One club next week but the Republic of Ireland youth international insists he owes the Canaries a massive debt.
'No regrets, no bitterness at all. I can't thank Norwich enough really for everything they have done in the past four years,' he said. 'It if it wasn't for them and what they gave me I doubt I would have the level of clubs in for me right now.
'Obviously with the club pushing for the Premier League when the new manager came in last season and then when they got promoted I thought if they offer me a new deal then, fair play, I am going to be here another year, but the flip side of that is now they are back in the Premier League realistically I am not going to play in the first team. There were probably six or seven centre backs ahead of me at the club so it is time for me to move on.
