Norwich City have completed the signing of England Under-21 international Nathan Redmond for an undisclosed fee from cash-strapped Birmingham City.
The talented winger has signed a four-year deal at the Canaries becoming Chris Hughton's third signing of the summer so far following the arrivals of Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Javier Garrido.
The 19-year-old expressed his delight about making the move to the Premier League club when speaking to their official club website earlier today.
"I'm very happy. It looks like a fantastic club, I'm just looking forward to getting started now,” said Redmond.
"I know that there is only one football club in this city and it has an excellent fan base.
"The people around the football club and in the city that I have spoken to so far have attracted me to this club so much, it's made me realise just how much this club means to the people of this city."
Redmond admitted he was delighted about being reunited with Chris Hughton again, after impressing under him at former club Birmingham.
"He was very influential on my career at Birmingham. He gave me the chance to play and the chance to express myself every time that I stepped on to the field and I feel like on the bigger stage he will do exactly the same thing," Redmond added.
"I would probably say I have played some of my best football under him so far."
This is yet another example of a transfer coup pulled off by the Norfolk side, as they look to embed talent with experience in the squad.
The likes of Bradley Johnson and Robert Snodgrass both came from the Championship and impressed in the Premier League last season, so the Canaries will be hopeful that Redmond can have a similar impact at the club.
