Oliver Norwood is a promotion specialist in the Championship and he is looking like one of the signings of the season thus far.
Norwood won promotion with Fulham last season, and did the same with Brighton a year earlier, however, he has never made the cut for the Premier League squads of his last two clubs.
It may be frustrating for the Northern Ireland international, who must wonder what he has to do to get a chance at a Premier League outfit.
However, despite this, Norwood is proving himself yet again in the second flight with Sheffield United and boasts an impressive stat early into his career at Bramall Lane.
Despite missing the first three league matches of the campaign, the 27-year-old has the highest assist to game ratio in the division, which is extremely pleasing for Blades fans.
He has bagged one goal and three assists thus far in the league since his loan deal from Brighton, which will become permanent when the January window opens.
Most notably, Norwood put in a perfect performance in the thrashing of Aston Villa last month, getting a goal and assist.
Norwood has brought a new dynamic to Sheffield United’s midfield, adding a calmness on the ball, which helps his teammates greatly.
Sheffield United may have peaked too early last season and a number of factors meant that a play-off place was too much in the end, but this season, the challenge is truly on.
Norwood will be hoping to earn three promotions on the bounce and so far has proved he is well worth the money Sheffield United are set to pay Brighton in January.
