Norwich City have signed Galatasaray forward Johan Elmander on a season-long loan.
The 32-year-old former Bolton striker travelled to Norwich on Tuesday to put pen to paper on the loan move.
Elmander told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy - I’m really looking forward to starting training with the lads and to playing some games also.
“I know Norwich City has great fans and there’s a great atmosphere in the stadium, plus I know a couple of players here already too.
“I’m very glad that the deal has been done and now I’m looking forward to the season ahead.”
Canaries boss Chris Hughton said: “I’m really delighted to bring in a player of Johan’s experience, not only at club and Premier League level but as a current international. It’s great to welcome him to our squad.”
Elmander scored 18 goals in 92 Premier League appearances for Bolton between 2008-11, while also notching 19 goals in 71 caps for Sweden.
