Spurs sell youngster Pritchard to Norwich

Norwich City have agreed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur to sign midfielder Alex Pritchard, it has been confirmed.

England Under-21 international Pritchard, who has previously had loan spells with Brentford and West Brom, has signed a four-year deal at Carrow Road.

I'm ready to come here, fight for my place and hopefully play well.

I feel I need to go out and prove myself again in football. I'm 23 now so it's about time I had my own path really.

I've had a full pre-season and with our first game at the weekend I'm looking forward to hopefully bedding myself in quickly.

Birmingham chasing Norwich flop Van Wolfswinkel

Birmingham want to end Ricky van Wolfswinkel's Norwich nightmare.

The Blues have held talks with the Canaries over a season-long loan for their record signing, Press Association Sport understands.

Boss Gary Rowett believes he can revive the Dutchman's career after it came to a grinding halt following his £8.5m move to Carrow Road from Sporting Lisbon in 2013.

Van Wolfswinkel has no future under Norwich manager Alex Neil and the Canaries would welcome the chance to move him on as he enters the final year of his contract.

He has scored just twice in 28 appearances and was loaned out to Saint Etienne and Real Betis in the last two seasons having flopped in Norfolk.

The 27-year-old scored just 12 goals during those loan spells and while he has played for the Canaries in pre-season his days are numbered with Neil targeting Fulham forward Ross McCormack.

Michael McGovern joins Norwich on a free transfer

Norwich have signed Northern Ireland international goalkeeper Michael McGovern on a free transfer.

McGovern, 32, whose contract at Scottish Premiership side Hamilton expired earlier this summer, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal to link up again with former Accies boss Alex Neil.

"Having worked with the gaffer before, that was a big pull for me," McGovern told Norwich's official website.

"I had some interest from elsewhere but I'm really looking forward to working with him again now at Norwich.

"I'm aiming to get into the team but I know I'm up against some top-class goalkeepers. It's going to be intense competition, although it's a challenge I'll relish."

Championship side Norwich City have signed attacking midfielder Sergi Canos from Liverpool for a fee of £2.5million, which could rise to £4.5million.

The former Barcelona youngster, who spent last season on loan at Brentford, has signed a four-year deal at Carrow Road.

From the beginning, Norwich showed very good interest and showed that they believe in me.

I’m very excited to be here. Carrow Road impressed me, I’ve seen videos of it and it looks an amazing atmosphere and I can’t wait to play there.

Ed Balls says Norwich will aim to keep best players

Chairman Ed Balls says Norwich want to keep their best players, including Nathan Redmond, so they can bounce back from their Premier League relegation at the first attempt.

England Under-21s winger Redmond is one of the Canaries' most coveted talents and there has been speculation of a switch away from Carrow Road following the club's relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.

Balls told Norwich-based The Pink'un: "Nathan is showing his stuff out in the Under-21s (Toulon Tournament) at the moment, scored a great goal last night and I think everybody at the football club wants to keep all of our players - and our best players - with us into the Championship next season.

"As (manager) Alex Neil has said, the reality is there are going to be people looking at what's happening at Norwich.

"But we have no need to make any short-term, foolish decisions that are bad for the best interests of the football club - and we're not going to be doing that."
