Norwich boss Alex Neil confirmed striker Lewis Grabban has been suspended by the club until next Tuesday after leaving the team hotel without permission.

The 27-year-old will not be involved in the Canaries' Premier League trip to Southampton on Sunday, and his future beyond next week remains unclear.
