Martin Olsson: Swedish defender delighted with Norwich move

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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
