Johan Elmander: Joining Norwich on loan from Galatasaray

Elmander spent an unsuccessful spell at Bolton, scoring just 18 times in 82 appearances for them after signing from Toulouse for £8.2m in 2008.

But the 32-year-old will now return to the Premier League to bolster manager Chris Hughton's squad, subject to paperwork and international clearance.

"I'm very happy - I'm really looking forward to starting training with the lads and to playing some games also," Elmander told Norwich's official website.

"I know Norwich City has great fans and there's a great atmosphere in the stadium, plus I know a couple of players here already too.

"I'm very glad that the deal has been done and now I'm looking forward to the season ahead."

Elmander has scored 16 goal in 52 games for Galatasaray since joining them on a free transfer from Bolton.

But the Turkish side have deemed him to be surplus to requirements, a decision that suits Hughton.

"I'm really delighted to bring in a player of Johan's experience, not only at club and Premier League level but as a current international," said Hughton.

"It's great to welcome him to our squad."

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.
