Leeds United’s Bradley Johnson to sign for Norwich City

Leeds United midfielder Bradley Johnson is set to join Norwich City on a three-year deal.

Johnson arrives at Carrow Road after his contract expired at Elland Road where he scored 17 goals in 107 games.

On his move to Carrow Road, Johnson told the club's official website: 'I'm over the moon really to get the chance to play in the Premier League with a big club like Norwich City and under a great manager who I have a lot of respect for. He's done a fantastic job since he arrived at Norwich and that was one of the main factors in me signing with the club.

'Norwich have already got some good players there and I've had some great battles with some of them over the past couple of years in my time with Leeds.

'They proved they were a good team by getting back-to-back promotions, and another deciding factor was to join a team that enjoys playing football and is hungry and has got that desire to succeed.
