Norwich complete Olsson signing

Norwich City have confirmed the arrival of Swedish defender Martin Olsson from Blackburn.

The 25-year-old has brought an end to his seven-year stay at Ewood Park in order to secure a return to the Premier League with Chris Hughton’s side after the clubs agreed a fee on Wednesday.

And he has expressed delight at finally completing his move, while revealing that the Carrow Road club faced stiff competition for his signature.

“I’m very happy, it feels good to play in the Premier League again, to be with a Premier League club, so yes I’m excited,” he told the club’s official website.

“My dream has always been to be in the Premier League but we (Blackburn) went down into the Championship, which was a good lesson for me. I learned a lot of things.

“But I’m at a new club right now, so I’m looking forward to meeting the players and enjoying my time here. I had a few clubs (interested) but I think Chris (Hughton) gave me a good idea of how they wanted to play and the ambition of this club.”

Olsson, who made 132 appearances in total for Blackburn, has been capped on 15 occasions by Sweden.
