Blackburn Rovers’ Martin Olsson is set to sign a four-year deal with Norwich, subject to the necessary paperwork being completed.
The 25-year-old defender has moved to the Premier League club for an undisclosed fee after a six-year spell at Ewood Park.
During last season’s Championship campaign for Blackburn, the versatile Swede started 31 games across all competitions.
Olsson, who can also play in midfield, is a regular fixture for his country after making his international debut in 2009.
He becomes Norwich’s fourth signing of the close-season, with Chris Hughton’s side showing their intent ahead of the 2013-14 campaign after smashing their transfer record for Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.
Speaking of Olsson’s transfer, Hughton said: “We’re delighted with the addition of Martin. He’s been playing in England for seven years and is well acclimatised to the Premier League.
“He can also play anywhere on the left hand side so he brings us good flexibility in that sense, plus at 25 he’s at an age where he has some experience and also some time to improve.”
The Norfolk club also sealed the signing of goalkeeper Carlo Nash on a free transfer on Wednesday.
Nash, 39, has penned a one-year deal at Carrow Road following his release by Stoke City at the end of last season,
