Why Norwich Rate Remi Matthews So Highly

The 23-year-old goalkeeper recently signed a new contract with the Canaries where he is expected to have a bright future

Emergency addition Remi Matthews arrives to bolster Plymouth Argyle’s stricken goalkeeping department from Norwich City, where he is very highly thought of.

Two weeks ago today, in fact, the 23-year-old signed a new contract with the Canaries tying him to Carrow Road until the summer of 2019 with an option to extend too.

Not the move of a club with no interest in Matthews’s future as a goalkeeper in the game. They are most impressed by his character and working attitude, attributes which may rub off on young Pilgrims stopper Michael Cooper.

When he signed the deal, current head coach Daniel Farke said: "I am really happy with this news.

"Remi is still young as a goalkeeper and has a lot of potential. He has faced a lot of competition this season, but has a brilliant character and a great working attitude.

"In the last period he was improved week-to-week and when he continues with this attitude we will have a lot of joy with him in our future."

Matthews has made 42 professional appearances in his career up to now, the majority of which came last season with Hamilton Academical in Scotland, where he played 27 matches.

He has played in League One before too. Across the 2015/16 season Matthews made 11 appearances for Burton Albion and Doncaster Rovers.
