Joe Lewis will keep a close eye on his home-town club Norwich City and monitor the progress of former Aberdeen team-mate Kenny McLean.
The Dons goalkeeper came through the Norwich academy and is a Canaries fan, so has a vested interest in how McLean fares at Carrow Road.
McLean brought the curtain down on his Aberdeen career on the final day of the season, before returning to Norwich. He was signed by Daniel Farke in January and then loaned back ti Pittodrie for the remainder of the season.
Lewis was with Norwich from the age of eight and remained with the club until the age of 21. However, he did not make a senior appearance before leaving for Peterborough in 2008. He believes the Norwich supporters will take to McLean and there is no reason why he should not be a success in the English Championship.
He said: “Norwich is a big club but Kenny is a big player so he will fit in there no problem. I am delighted for him, the supporters there like to see good players so they will take to him. Kenny always gives one hundred percent so he won’t have any problems coping with the demands of the Championship either.
“The club has been going through a bit of a transition, they have been getting the higher earners out of the club and rebuilding. They have been trying to make shrewd signings of quality players, which is something they have certainly done with Kenny.
“It will be very interesting to see how he does, I’m a Norwich fan so I always look for their results anyway but I will be watching Kenny to see how he gets on. He is a good mate and he’s been picking my brains about the club, asking where to live and what the club is like. I’m sure he will move down there with his girlfriend and be happy.”
Another of his former team-mates James Maddison is highly-rated at Norwich, with reports valuing the 21-year-old at £20 million. Lewis hopes he sticks around at Carrow Road however, so he and McLean can be reunited.
Lewis added: “James Maddison has been brilliant for Norwich but unfortunately he got an injury on the final day of the season. I would imagine that if it’s not too bad there will be a lot of offers come in for him over the summer.
“Hopefully he stays because having him and Kenny together in the middle of the park would be great for the team next season.”
