“I spoke with Daniel (Farke, manager) and Stuart (Webber, sporting director). We had a very long conversation about football and the vision for the team.

“I’ve heard a lot about how Norwich plays football in the right manner and style and also the club’s spirit and mentality. I love that and that got me very excited.”

Lees-Melou follows Milot Rashica and Angus Gunn in signing for Norwich, who have acquired Billy Gilmour on a season-long loan from Chelsea.
