The 28-year-old goalkeeper, a former Bungay High School pupil who was raised in Broome, joined the Bluebirds on a free transfer from Peterborough in 2012 but made just five appearances for the Welsh club.

Lewis spent the first half of last season on loan at Championship rivals Fulham, making nine appearances for the Cottagers, which followed spending the 2014/15 season on loan at Blackpool.

The keeper never made an appearance for the Canaries but was an England Under-21 international and rose to prominence in May 2008 after being named in the senior squad alongside David James and Joe Hart for friendly matches against the USA and Trinidad & Tobago, although he was an unused substitute.

Another former Norwich keeper looking for a new club this summer is Matt Gilks, who has been released by Burnley ahead of the Clarets return to the top flight.
