Norwich announced that the Scotland international had moved to Carrow Road for an undisclosed fee just 48 hours after he appeared as a substitute in the Canaries' Sky Bet Championship play-off final victory over Middlesbrough at Wembley.

The 28-year-old had been on loan with Norwich from February, making 18 appearances for Alex Neil's side.

The midfielder joined West Brom from Livingston in 2008 and turned out for the Baggies on 189 occasions, scoring 26 times.

Balotelli staying with Liverpool - agent

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli will remain at the club next season, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The Italy international's first season after a £16million move from AC Milan was a flop with just four goals - only one of which came in the Premier League - and he was top of a list of names the club reportedly wanted to offload this summer.

However, Raiola insists the 24-year-old is staying where he is.

"We have talks with Liverpool and he will stay," he told Sky Sports.

"I spoke many times with the club and they were happy with his input as a professional."

Asked whether the striker and manager Brendan Rodgers had adapted to each other over the course of the season, Raiola added: "I think Mario did, I cannot talk for Brendan Rodgers.

"Obviously we're pretty confident it'll happen next year."

The Cherries brought in last season's loanee Artur Boruc on a permanent deal on Tuesday and have followed that up by agreeing to terms on a three-year deal with Federici, who was a free agent after his contract with the Royals expired.

Federici, 30, made 49 appearances in all competitions for Sky Bet Championship side Reading last term, but it was his error in the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal, when he let an Alexis Sanchez shot squirm under his body, which sealed the Gunners' progress to this weekend's final.

The keeper had been with the Royals for a decade and he was their first-choice stopper in their last campaign in the top flight.

It was difficult to leave Reading because I had been there an extremely long time. I had a lot of success there and the fans were great for me, but I thought it was time I moved on.

I'm looking forward to joining something special down here. It's a team I admired last season, watching how they play their football. Having spoken to people like Ian Harte, who I'm close to, he couldn't speak highly enough of the squad.

As I said, I feel like I'm joining something special and I'm looking forward to working with the manager and the boys. I can't wait to get started.
