Norwich City have completed the signing of Lincoln City defender Sean Raggett on a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old, who helped the Imps reach promotion from the National League last season, will return to Lincoln on loan until January.

He joined Danny Cowley's in 2016 and also played a key role in the Imps’ FA Cup run, where they famously faced Premier league side Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

Speaking to Norwich City TV, Raggett said: "I’m delighted to be here as it’s a massive move for me."

"Norwich is a huge club and it was a chance I couldn’t turn down. I’ve had a great time at Lincoln and it will be good to go back for the first few months of the season and thank them for what they’ve done for me."

Meanwhile, League One side Northampton have signed midfielder Matt Grimes from Swansea City on a season-long loan.

Norwich have signed midfielder Adam Phillips on a two-year deal, following the teenager's successful trial with the club.

The 19-year-old has spent the summer on trial with the Championship club's U23s side.

Phillips was released by Liverpool in May after ten years at Anfield and is targeting a first-team place with the Canaries.

"I think it's good the first-team have a new head coach, so hopefully I can try and catch his eye in the Under-23s games and try to push to train with the first-team and get around the squad", he told the club's official website.

Meanwhile, League One side Northampton Town have signed striker Chris Long on a season-long loan from Premier League side Burnley.

Murphy, a boyhood Newcastle fan, made 42 appearances for the Canaries first-team as well as playing for England Under-21s.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez said: "He's a young and talented player and hopefully he can develop even more here.

"We hope he can show us the passion, commitment and ability that he showed in the Championship last season."
