Norwich City have completed the signing of Cuba winger Onel Hernandez.
The 24-year-old joins from Eintracht Braunschweig in the Bundesliga 2, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract.
City's German manager Daniel Farke said: "Onel had an outstanding season last year in the German second tier, playing on the wing.
"He's right-footed but can play on both the left wing and the right wing, and he can also play as a quick striker who can make runs in behind. We're very happy to have him at Norwich."
Hernandez, who moved to Germany aged six but has one cap for Cuba, said: "I'm very hungry to play for Norwich. I came here to win matches, to give my all for my team-mates and my club. I like to get the fans excited and everything is very positive."
Hernandez made 53 appearances for Braunschweig, scoring six goals. He made his senior debut for German side Arminia Bielefeld after progressing in their youth academy before spells with Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg's second teams.
