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 and MK Dons centre-back Joe Walsh has agreed a new three-year deal.
