Norwich have signed Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts on a season-long loan deal.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Girona in Spain after a successful two-season loan at Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
While at Celtic, Roberts helped the club to three Scottish Premiership titles, two Scottish Cups and two Scottish League Cups.
Roberts - a former England youth international - began his senior career at Fulham, where he broke through from the academy, before switching to City for a fee in the region of £12m in July 2015.
And although he has struggled for first-team opportunities at the Etihad, the player signed a two-year contract extension keeping him at the club until 2022 before sealing the temporary switch to Carrow Road.
On the Norwich move, Roberts said: "It's great to have the deal done. I've known about the interest for a while.
"Coming to another club is another step for me and hopefully I can learn from those experiences."
