Anthony Pilkington suffered a dead leg early in Norwich's 3-1 win over West Ham. He will not join up with Ireland and instead will remain in Norwich for treatment.

Pilkinton was replaced on the half-hour by Nathan Redmond. The midfielder has made an unfortunate habit of being injured in and around international call-ups. He should recover in time to face Newcastle United in two-weeks time.

Norwich midfielder, Anthony Pilkington, has returned to Carrow Road early after being released from international duty with an injury.

Oft-injured midfielder Anthony Pilkington is suffering from a knee injury picked up on Norwich's USA tour.

Pilkington hasn't played in Norwich's recent friendlies, and has pulled out of the Republic of Ireland's upcoming match. This may be a good opportunity for new signing Martin Olsson to lay claim to the left-midfield slot. That would be a boon for fantasy managers as Olsson is listed in most games as a defender.

Norwich City finalized the transfer of Marcus Olsson from Blackburn Rovers.

Olsson will compete with Javier Garrido and Anthony Pilkington for one of the spots on Norwich's left flank. If he can win that midfield role from Pilkington, and if he is listed as a defender in the fantasy games, he will be an interesting out-of-position option.

Norwich City have signed Nathan Redmond from Birmingham City.

Redmond, a versatile attacker who can play on either wing on "in the hole" behind the striker worked with Norwich City manager Chris Hughton when Hughton managed the Blues. Redmond will give the Canaries depth in attack, and will provide cover for the recently oft-injured Anthony Pilkington, Wes Hoolahan, and Robert Snodgrass.

Anthony Pilkington has withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland’s upcoming friendlies against England, Georgia and Spain, as well as the World Cup qualifying game against the Faroe Islands.

Pilkington should be fine when Norwich reconvene at the end of the summer for pre-season training. At worst, it's an injury which will have to be managed through the year.
