Jake Humphrey responds to news that Matt Jarvis is to leave Norwich City

Matt Jarvis was one of several players released by Norwich City ahead of their return to the Premier League.

This post prompted a response on Twitter from BT Sports presenter and massive Norwich City fan Jake Humphrey.

The 33-year-old spent three-and-a-half-years at Norwich but only made 21 appearances because of a 31-month period of time out injured.

Jarvis joined Norwich from West Ham United – initially on loan – in September 2015 but in the following January the Canaries made the move permanent for £2.5m.

This brought an end to Jarvis’s rather unsuccessful spell in East London with the Hammers, where he made 90 appearances and only scored six goals as well as providing eight assists.

Jarvis had joined West Ham for £10m in August 2012 from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Middlesbrough born man made his name at Wolves during a five-year-stint in the Black Country.

He was known for his direct running and ability to whip in an excellent cros.

Jarvis put in three solid seasons with Wolves in the Premier League from 2009-12. In that time he made 108 appearances, scoring 13 times and registering 19 assists.

He leaves Norwich knowing that his only chance of regular first-team football will probably be with a side in League One.
