A £450,000 capture from Preston North End in January 2006 following a previous two-month loan spell at Carrow Road, Dickson is a powerful midfield player with all the attributes necessary to succeed in the modern game. He is at his best when breaking up opposition attacks and then moving forward with the ball at his feet. Difficult to dispossess when in possession of the ball, the Canaries will be hoping that he will find the finish to compliment some of his attacking play, as he is yet to break his goalscoring duck for Norwich. A natural athlete with a competitive approach, Dickson may well prove to be a key component in the City midfield as they seek to win promotion back to the Premiership in 2006-07.
