Former Bolton striker Johan Elmander looks set to complete a move back to the Premier League with Norwich City, after experiencing a lack of first-team football at Galatasaray.

Swedish striker Elmander, 32, previously had a three-year spell at Bolton before leaving for Turkey but will now return to England, according to Galatasaray technical director Buluent Tulun.

Speaking to Swedish newspaper Expressen, he said: "I can confirm Johan is moving to England.

"We have agreed with Johan, his new club Norwich and his agent. We wish Johan the best of luck in the future."

Elmander made a total of 108 appearances for the Turkish champions, scoring 22 goals, but has seen first-team opportunities limited since the arrival of Didier Drogba last season.

The striker also confirmed the news via Twitter on Tuesday, tweeting: 'On the way to Norwich City! A new career begins tomorrow!.. I'm happy to be back in England. You know more than me, but it's right.'

The Swedish international will become Chris Hughton's third forward signing this summer after the arrivals of Gary Hooper and Ricky van Wolfswinkel, providing more firepower to a side that were the third lowest scorers in last season's Premier League.
