On 5th July 2017, Norwich made their fifth signing of the 2017 summer transfer window when they signed Southampton's former England Under-20 midfielder Harrison Reed on a season long loan.
Reed has come through the famed Saints academy and has made 17 Premier League appearances for the south coast club since breaking into the first team picture in August 2013. His first team debut was against Barnsley on 27th August 2013 in the League Cup with his league debut coming on 7th December 2013 against Leicester.
Head coach Daniel Farke said: “Harrison is a young and talented player with lots of potential. He is technically very good with the ball and fits my idea of football. We will look to develop and improve him, so I’m looking forward to us working together.”
Reed signed a four-and-a-half year deal with Saints last December and vice-chairman (football) Les Reed is keen for the former England Under-20 international to get regular game time.
He made his Norwich debut in the 1-1 draw away to Fulham on the opening day of the 2017/18 season (5th August 2017). He scored his first Norwich goal in the 2-0 win over QPR on 16th August 2017. He made a total of 43 appearances during his loan spell
On 23rd August 2018, he was linked with another loan move, this time to Blackburn after he had not featured in any of Southampton's match-day squads.. This became reality on 27th August 2018.
