Martin Olsson: Swedish defender delighted with Norwich move

Martin Olsson is delighted to be back in the Premier League after completing the formalities of his move to Norwich from Blackburn.

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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
