Former Norwich City midfielder Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe has signed for Gent in a deal reportedly worth 2.2million Euros.

The 29-year-old spent last season at Olympiacos but failed to settle in Greece, making just 18 appearances for the Greek giants.

Odjidja-Ofoe went to Greece on the back of helping Legia Warsaw to the league title and impressing in the Champions League following an ill-fated spell with the Canaries.

The Belgium international was signed from Club Brugge by Norwich in a deal reportedly worth around £3m in the summer of 2014 as City looked to build a promotion push following relegation from the Premier League.

Odjidja-Ofoe managed just 19 appearances and failed to find the back of the net across two seasons though, with injury problems restricting him to eight starts.

Odjidja came through the academy at Gent as a youngster before moving to Anderlecht.
