Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

New Norwich City striker Johan Elmander has spoke of his delight at joining the club and being able to play in the Premier League once again, the Telegraph reports.

The 32-year-old has joined on a season long loan from Turkish side Galatasaray and in doing so has become the club’s third new striker of the transfer window behind Ricky Van Wolfswnkel and Gary Hooper.

However, Hooper is missing for the start of the campaign with a shin injury and the Swedish international will provide instant cover for Chris Hughton’s men.

Elmander has scored 19 goals in 71 international appearances and also has Premier League experience from his time at Bolton, where he signed for a record £8.2million in 2008.

“For me the Premier League is the best league in the world and if you get the opportunity to play here you wont hesitate to come back,” said Elmander.

“When Norwich said they were interested in me that was very nice and I’m very glad that we have a deal now.

“I know they have great fans and a great atmosphere in the stadium and I know a couple of the players also.”

Elmander is expected to provide a physical presence up front that was left by Grant Holt, who moved on to Join Wigan Athletic earlier in the summer.
