Norwich's chief operating officer, Ben Kensell, confirmed the purchases at a recent general assembly, allowing the club to potentially erect a new stand.

Kensell also admitted he preferred not to be sponsored by a company linked with addiction, but that he could not pass on the big amounts paid out by gambling firms.
