Norwich City have signed Sweden left-sided player Martin Olsson on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Blackburn Rovers.
A fee of £2.5m had been reported for Olsson, who was also linked with a switch to Carrow Road in January. He completed a medical at Carrow Road on Tuesday before becoming Chris Hughton’s third new signing of the summer.
Canaries boss Chris Hughton said: “We’re delighted with the addition of Martin. He’s been playing in England for seven years and is well acclimatised to the Premier League.
“He can also play anywhere on the left hand side so he brings us good flexibility in that sense, plus at 25 he’s at an age where he has some experience and also some time to improve.
“At this time it’s about improving the squad that we have and Martin certainly does that.”
