Long-serving Norwich City goalkeeper Declan Rudd has joined Championship rivals Preston North End for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old, who had two successful loan spells at Preston earlier in his career, has agreed a three-year deal at Deepdale.

The move brings to an end an 18-year association with the Canaries for Rudd who joined the club's academy at the age of eight.

Coming back here is something that has always been in my mind. When I was on loan here a few years ago it felt like home to me and everyone made me feel welcome and wanted.

The last three or four years I’ve been here, there and everywhere and I’m happy to finally come back and get things underway.

Striker Joe Garner has joined Championship side Ipswich Town from Rangers for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old striker has signed a three year deal with the club.

Garner moved to Rangers last summer for a reported £1.8 million and previously played for Blackburn, Nottingham Forest and Preston.

It's Town's second signing of the summer, following Jordan Spence's decision to agree a new contract.

Garner told Town's website: “I know all about the Championship. It’s the toughest league I have played in but we’ve got some good players here and I’m ready for the challenge.

“I had a great time at Rangers and got on well with the fans there but that’s behind me now. It’s a new chapter for me here.”
