The Sweden international left-back, who played in the top flight with Rovers before their relegation to the Championship in 2012, has joined the Canaries on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Olsson told Norwich's official website: "I'm very happy, it feels good to play in the Premier League again, to be with a Premier League club, so yes I'm excited.

"My dream has always been to be in the Premier League but Rovers went down into the Championship, which was a good lesson for me. I learned a lot of things.

"But I'm at a new club right now, so I'm looking forward to meeting the players and enjoying my time here."

The 25-year-old is also relishing the prospect of working with Norwich boss Chris Hughton after arriving at Carrow Road.

"I had a few clubs (interested) but I think Chris gave me a good idea of how they wanted to play and the ambition of this club," he added.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
