Michael Turner has spoken of his delight at joining Norwich after signing a two-year deal with the Premier League club.
The 28-year-old defender joined from Sunderland and is Norwich manager Chris Hughton's fourth signing of the summer following the captures of Jacob Butterfield, Steven Whittaker and Robert Snodgrass.
At 28 years old he is joining us at a good age, and I'm happy to have been able to welcome him to Norwich City.Chris Hughton
Turner is eager to impress after falling down the pecking order at the Stadium of Light following a succession of injuries.
"I was really impressed with Norwich last season. I was on the bench for the game at Carrow Road, and I got to see them play, so I was impressed with the players, the stadium, and the whole set-up of the club," the former Hull player told the Canaries' official website.
"I've picked up a lot of experience throughout my career, and hopefully I can add a bit to the squad here.
"I feel good. Last year I played just shy of 30 games, and now that I've come back to pre-season I feel stronger than ever."
Hughton is pleased to have landed his man and believes he has much to offer the club, who are 7.00 to finish in the top half of the table next season.
"I'm delighted to be able to bring Michael into the squad as he is a player with a wealth of Premier League experience," he said.
"At 28 years old he is joining us at a good age, and I'm happy to have been able to welcome him to Norwich City."
The Canaries are 4.50 to defeat Fulham in their first game of the season, while a draw can be backed at 3.60.
