Tudur Jones confident Norwich City will stay in Premier League

Former Norwich City and Swansea midfielder Owain Tudur Jones is confident both teams will be playing Premier League football again next season.

The Wales international, now with Scottish Premier League club Inverness Caledonian Thistle, said he was sure last summer that both his old clubs would do well in the top flight.

In an interview for Swansea's matchday programme, Tudur Jones, 27, said: 'Pundits will say that they've always said both clubs would stay up, when in fact they were predicting a one-way ticket to the Championship.

'But I remember speaking to some fellow pros in the summer and telling them both teams would be fine.

'Why? Because the Swans play a different style that teams will find difficult to deal with.

'And Norwich? Well, they have the trump card in Paul Lambert. He's a natural winner.

'Both clubs will stay up, no problem at all.'
