Norwich City have secured a late deadline day signing after confirming that winger Matt Jarvis has joined from West Ham United on a season-long loan.


The 29-year-old, who has been capped once by England, has previously played for Gillingham and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jarvis has scored six times in 90 matches for the Hammers, after joining from Wolves for a reported record fee of £10.75m in 2012.

The tricky wide-man played for England in a 2011 friendly against Ghana at Wembley but has not featured since. He began his career at Gillingham, playing 122 matches before a five-year spell at Wolves, where he made 387 appearances in all competitions – including in excess of 100 in the Barclays Premier League – and scored 43 goals.

So far this season Jarvis had made eight appearances for Slaven Bilic's team, five coming in Europa League qualifiers and the other three as a substitute in the Premier League.

The Hammers confirmed the deal in a statement on their official website, saying: 'The club wishes Matt the best of luck at Carrow Road this season.'

Jarvis will not be able to play against his parent club when they host the Canaries in the league later this month, due to Premier League loan rules, with Alex Neil's side due to visit the Boleyn Ground on Saturday, September 26.

Jarvis has scored at Carrow Road previously, in a losing cause in March 2012 when Wolves were beaten 2-1 in the top flight.
