Following promotion back to the top flight, Norwich will be looking to bed in and build on a superb 2018/19 campaign - which saw them lift the Championship title.
The Canaries were superb throughout the season, mixing a blend of youth with experience to coast away from nearest challengers Sheffield United and Leeds.
Two youngsters who starred throughout the campaign were Jamal Lewis and Ben Godfrey, with both reportedly catching the eye of a number of Premier League sides. Godfrey, in particular, has been linked with a move to Tottenham and Manchester United (who hasn't), but what do we know about him?
Well, we here at 90min thought we'd help you out on that one - with five things to know about a player you may not have seen play before.
He Possesses Desirable Versatility
Godfrey made 36 appearances for Norwich last season, in what was his first taste of regular Championship football after spending the 2017/18 season on loan at League One outfit Shrewsbury Town.

Did We Mention Versatility? How About an Appearance as a Striker
So we've established Godfrey can play at centre back and in a central midfield role, but he started off his career as a striker.
Opening up in a video on Norwich's official YouTube channel before the start of last season, the defender revealed that his footballing hero was Thierry Henry and that he used to play as a striker until around the age of 11.
"My footballing hero is actually Thierry Henry, although I don't score that many goals it was Thierry Henry. I was a striker when I was a kid, up until about the age of 11 or 12. I liked his style of play and stuff like that and he obviously got plenty of goals, so yeh I enjoyed watching him."
York City Will Benefit From a Big Money Move
Keeping one eye on the transfer speculation over Godfrey will be former employees York City, who had the youngster on their books between 2014 and 2016.
They sold him to Norwich in for an undisclosed fee, but it is widely reported that the move included a sell on fee.
The clause in the contract would mean York would net around 15% of any fee Norwich agree for the player, and with such high profile clubs keeping tabs on Godfrey, York will likely receive a six figure sum should a sale be completed.
He Has Lofty Ambitions
Godfrey has come a long way in three years, gaining a call up to the England Under-20 team for their Elite League fixtures against Poland and Portugal in March.
His speedy rise through the ranks has not phased the youngster and it seems his sights are firmly set on further improvement and reaching the senior England squad in the future.
Speaking to the York Press after his international debut, he said:
“A couple of our boys went away and trained with the first team while we were at St George’s Park. A few years ago, that quick progression didn’t seem to be there, but Gareth Southgate has shown that, by playing people like Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi, he’s not afraid to chuck people in and he’ll give anybody a chance that deserve one.”
