Shane Duffy will be available for selection for Norwich City in their big Championship play-off semi-final opener against Leeds on Sunday.

Duffy was charged with drink driving earlier this week, but Canaries head coach David Wagner confirmed that the Republic of Ireland international would be available.

"He trained normal as well and made everything as well," said Wagner at his pre-match media briefing on Thursday lunchtime.

“At the end of the day, I think the club made a statement. I don't like to speak too much about it. This is the legal process now which is ongoing. We assess that internally, obviously, as well. We have to now see how the week continues."

Wagner said he was confident the 32-year-old would be able to focus fully on the game.

“Yeah, I think so - obviously I have to have some conversations with him at the end of the week, but everything what he experienced and everything what he knows and everything what I've seen in training so far, I think so,” said Wagner. “But at the end of the day, we have another 48 hours to go and then we will see.”

Duffy moved to City from Fulham on a free transfer last summer and has started 31 Championship games for the Canaries in a season when the centre of defence has changed regularly because of injuries.

“I think he has done exactly what we hoped when we signed him,” said Wagner. “To be fair, obviously when we evaluate the last season, we said we needed more mental robustness and we had to be stronger in set-pieces as well, without spending too much money and then obviously Duffy was one of our, or my, first targets - free transfer, a proper leader, a guy who has experience and is able to help offensively and defensively in set-pieces as well.

“I think he needed a little bit of time to adapt because he didn't play a lot. Obviously we maybe try to defend in a certain style as well where he had to adapt as well, but what can I say, even at his age he wanted to adapt, he wanted to learn, he wanted to progress and I think, especially in the last few months, we've seen more or less the best out of him.”
