Norwich City will be among the clubs at a Premier League meeting which will look at security measures after the Paris massacres.

Following the weekend's terror attacks in Paris, which targeted the Stade de France, the Premier League will hold a meeting to address safety measures tomorrow.

League officials have been liaising with police and the government, and will feed back to clubs at the meeting.

A statement from the Premier League said: 'We are actively engaged with our security advisers and the appropriate authorities, including the Home Office and senior representatives from the police, to assess current security guidance to Premier League clubs.

'There is a club meeting later this week where a full security briefing will be given.
