Norwich City has completed the signing of Alex Pritchard from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee. The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a four-year contract.
The Pritchard signing is a big addition to the squad for the Canaries as they look to bounce back to the Premier League after getting relegated last season. The former England U21 player is the fourth signing of the summer for Norwich.
Pritchard had most of last season destroyed by injury, and he only featured twice for West Bromwich Albion during his loan spell at the club. During the 2014/15 season he had a great loan spell at Championship side Brenton where he scored 12 league goals and earning himself a place in the Championship PFA Team of the Year.
Pritchard told the club’s official website: “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.”
Norwich manager Alex Neil added: “Alex is an exciting player who is capable of both scoring and creating goals.
“He is proven at this level having excelled at Brentford two seasons ago, and adds to our attacking options. I’m really looking forward to working with him on a day-to-day basis.”
Pritchard represented England at the U20 World Cup in 2013 and made nine appearances for England U21.
