Norwich sign Snodgrass

Norwich have completed the signing of Leeds midfielder Robert Snodgrass on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old, who joins the Canaries for an undisclosed fee, is manager Chris Hughton's third summer signing following Jacob Butterfield and Steven Whittaker.

"He is a player I have admired for a number of years now and he's at a good age at 24, with some excellent experience from his time with Leeds," Hughton said on www.canaries.co.uk.

"He's also got that international experience with Scotland and is used to playing in big matches both with his country and at Elland Road."

Snodgrass made 193 appearances during his four-year spell with Leeds, scoring 41 goals. He also has five caps for Scotland and Hughton is confident he will be a success in the Premier League.

"Robert is an excellent addition to the squad and I'm delighted to add a player of his calibre to the team," he said.

"He had a good goal-scoring record with Leeds and obviously knows a few of the lads already with the squad well from his time at Elland Road and with Scotland. I'm sure, like Jacob Butterfield and Steven Whittaker, it won't take him long to settle in with the squad."

Snodgrass admits the chance to play in the top flight was too good to turn down.

"I'm delighted to get it done and dusted and now I'm looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and starting the season," he said.

"I firmly believe that the Premier League is the best league in the world, and when Norwich came in for me, I made the step because I believe that Norwich can kick on again. Sometimes this window of opportunity doesn't come about too often, and I jumped at the chance."
