Norwich City have successfully ended their long-time pursuit of Robert Snodgrass on a three-year deal.

The Canaries have reportedly been chasing the Leeds winger for the best part of a year. And the former Leeds skipper said it was the chance to play in the Barclays Premier league which was too good to pass up.

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

Snodgrass told the club website, "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.

"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.

Hughton added: "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.

"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.

The Canaries are also believed to still be in talks with Sunderland centre half Michael Turner, who reportedly underwent a medical earlier this week.
