Just a season out of the Premier League and Norwich City are back. Under the guidance of Alex Neil, the club are reaping the rewards of taking the risk of naming the 33-year-old as their manager in January, rewards to the tune of £80m ($122m), to be precise.
The club's prize for promotion falls short compared to that collected by Bournemouth and Watford but it should still ensure the club are suitably financed to make key additions over the coming months.
Business so far
Days after Norwich's Championship play-off final victory over Middlesbrough, the club secured the services of Graham Dorrans on a two-year-deal, having sufficiently impressed at Carrow Road since his arrival from West Bromwich Albion on loan.
Luciano Becchio is one of six players to have left the club since then, having had his contract ended by mutual consent. Javier Garrido, Carlos Cuellar and Mark Bunn are also among those to leave, with former development squad members Kyle Callan-McFadden and Sam Kelly seeking new clubs too.
Midfielder Cameron McGeehan, 20, has also cut ties with the Canaries, joining Luton Town for a six-figure fee.
What they need
The core of the Norwich squad still consists of many of the faces who were relegated from the top flight in 2014 and that needs addressing. For a number of players, Martin Olsson, Bradley Johnson and Dorrans to name a few, they will have to prove next term they are of the standard required for the top flight.
In Cameron Jerome they have a striker who is prolific in the Championship but will need help in sharing the goalscoring burden in the top flight. A powerful presence down the wing to match Nathan Redmond's contribution will also come in handy.
Who could join
With Ricky van Wolfswinkel unlikely to be welcomed back with open arms, a striker is needed. John Guidetti, fresh from a loan spell at Celtic where he struck 15 in 35 appearances, is a possible target and will be available for a nominal fee with his contract at Manchester City expiring. Ross McCormack, who joined Fulham for a Championship record fee of £11m in 2014 has also been tipped for the role.
Who could leave
After a return of one goal in his first season at the club, the chances of seeing Van Wolfswinkel in a Norwich shirt in the Premier League again are slim. Another forward in Kyle Lafferty is likely to be moved on having struggled to fit in under Neil, while Michael Turner's loan spell at Fulham last season and his worrying lack of pace suggests he is unlikely to be part of Premier League plans.
Envious glances at Redmond are likely but the chances of Norwich listening to any offers are slim.
What the manager has said
"Your best players will always get interest. We had some calls in January and we managed to stave them off because we wanted to achieve our goal, and now we have got into the Premier League we have our own goals.
"Nobody will be leaving the football club who we don't think can help us remain there and do well."
