The midfielder has penned a two-year deal at the Liberty Stadium, and is hoping to help the Swans return to the top-flight.

The 29-year-old made 73 appearances for the Canaries, helping the club gain promotion from League One in 2009.

“I have not come here to have a holiday, I want to try and get this team back to the Premier League. That is my goal,” he told Swansea City’s website.

“I have a young family and I wanted to be able to get settled nice and quickly, I did not really want to wait around,” he said.

“When this opportunity came up, I jumped at it, to be honest.

“Me and my family are really excited to come down here. I have two young boys who cannot wait to get out on the beaches and enjoy the Joe’s ice cream we have been hearing so much about.”
