Norwich City have made their second signing of the day with Ben Marshall joining them from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Marshall, 27, can play as a winger or full-back on either side and spent the second half of last year on loan at Millwall after beginning the season at Molineux. In total last season he played 25 times, scoring three goals.

Born in Salford, Greater Manchester, Marshall began his youth career at Manchester United before joining Crewe Alexandra in 2003.

His professional career began with Stoke City before he joined Leicester City and then Blackburn Rovers where he made over 120 appearances.

Marshall is also a former England Under-21 international, having played twice for the Young Lions in 2012.

Norwich City have signed Finnish striker Teemu Pukki who will join the club on a free transfer from July 1.

Pukki, 28, signs a three-year deal with the Canaries after spending the last four seasons playing for Danish Superliga side Brondby.

His previous clubs include Celtic, Schalke and Sevilla and he is a seasoned Finland international, making 64 appearances and scoring 12 goals for his national side.

Pukki becomes City’s third signing of the summer after the arrivals of Emi Buendia and Moritz Leitner.

I’m very pleased with this signing. We got the feeling that Teemu is a good fit to our ideas because he is a technical player with really smart movements.

We were speaking about how we need to make more runs in-behind and runs from deep and he’s a player who has the smart movements.

He also has lots of speed which is also important. Wherever he plays, he was always able to be there with goals and assists.

He’s a brilliant character as well so we are very pleased to have him with us.

– Head Coach Daniel Farke
