Norwich City's latest signing Grant Hanley has described himself as an "old fashioned centre-half".

The Scottish international has signed for an undisclosed fee from Newcastle United on a four-year deal.

He told the club's website "It’s a club with high aspirations and a fresh start for me. As a defender, I’m a bit of an old-fashioned no-nonsense centre-half and you pride yourself on clean sheets. We’ve got work to do on the training ground to improve that."

The Canaries defence has already shipped 15 goals so far this season.

Daniel Farke said: "It was clear to me that while there were some things about the team which are working well, our defensive line needs strengthening. Grant is a quality defender and is not just another option in the defence."
