Premier League club Norwich have signed Sweden international Martin Olsson from Blackburn for an undisclosed fee.

Olsson moves to Carrow Road after agreeing terms on a four-year contract following a six-year spell with Championship outfit Blackburn.

The 25-year-old left-back was a long-term target of Canaries manager Chris Hughton, who is reported to have paid £2.5m (€2.9m) to seal the deal.

Hughton has already splashed out a club record £8.5m for Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel, while England U-21 winger Nathan Redmond arrived from Birmingham last week and defender Javier Garrido signed permanently after last season's loan from Lazio.

"We are delighted with the addition of Martin. He's been playing in England for seven years and is well acclimatised to the Premier League," Hughton told Norwich's official website.

"He can also play anywhere on the left hand side so he brings us good flexibility in that sense, plus at 25 he's at an age where he has some experience and also some time to improve."
