Norwich City have signed goalkeeper Carlo Nash on a free transfer following his release from Stoke City on a one-year deal.

The 39-year old provides experienced back-up for John Ruddy and Mark Bunn and arrives at Carrow Road following Jed Steer's transfer to Aston Villa and Declan Rudd's season-long loan spell with Preston North End.

Canaries boss Chris Hughton said: 'It is now important to us to bring in a keeper of great experience and a player that is used to living life in the Premier League.

'The move also allows us to send Declan Rudd out on an extremely valuable season-long loan to Preston where he can get some first-team football under his belt.'
