Former Bolton striker Johan Elamander has dropped a major hint that he will be signing for Norwich City, via his personal Twitter page.

The Swede, who has been with Turkish side Galatasaray for the last two seasons, tweeted: “Thank you for everything! Next challenge…” followed by a picture of Norwich’s club crest.

The news comes somewhat out of the blue, with little speculation building up to this signing, but it seems likely now that the 32-year-old will become the Canaries’ eighth signing of a busy summer.

Manager Chris Hughton has already managed to bring in Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Javier Garrido, Nathan Redmond, Martin Olsson, Carlo Nash, Leroy Fer and Gary Hooper, as he looks to establish Norwich as a safe mid-table side in the Premier League.

Elmander would make another fine addition, with the striker scoring 22 goals for Bolton in a three-year spell between 2008 and 2011, as well as a further 17 in the last two years in Turkey.

The tall forward is perhaps most famously remembered in his time in England by a superb solo goal scored away to Wolves in November 2010, with a poll in the Guardian even voting it the best Premier League goal of all time.
