Norwich City have snapped up Rochdale goalkeeper Matthew Gilks.Norwich City have snapped up Rochdale goalkeeper Matthew Gilks.
The 25-year-old will make the move to Carrow Road on a free transfer when his contract expires on 1st July.
Gilks is Norwich's second signing of the summer following the capture of Jon Otsemobor and the keeper was delighted to make the move to the Championship.
"I've been playing football since I was a young lad and this is the type of thing you dream of," Gilks told the club's official website.
"I got my opportunity at Rochdale and you work hard and you want to go onto bigger and better things and this is probably the biggest thing I've ever seen so I'm delighted."
Despite Gilks' arrival Canaries boss Peter Grant insists he is still keen on signing Celtic's David Marshall.
Norwich have already seen a bid rejected by Celtic for Marshall, who spent a spell on-loan at Carrow Road last season.
Grant remains hopeful of signing the Scottish international with the player expressing a desire to join the club.
"We have made an offer to Celtic and he is very keen to come to Norwich City," Grant told the club's official website.
"But how we value him and how Celtic value him seems to be different.
"But I'm not just looking at David, and getting Matty proves that. We are definitely out there looking for more additions."
