Matt Jarvis Joins Norwich For £2.5 Million

Winger had been on loan at Carrow Road since September.

Norwich City have agreed a deal to sign winger Matt Jarvis from West Ham United, reports Teamtalk. The fee is officially undisclosed but is reported to be around £2.5 million and will be finalised on January 2nd when the transfer window re-opens. Jarvis, 29, had been on loan at Carrow Road since September, making seven appearances for the Canaries and contributing two goals, including one in his debut 3-1 drubbing of Bournemouth. Despite West Ham signing Jarvis for a then club-record fee of £10.75 million in 2012, the Hammers have decided to cut their losses and sell him for over £8 million less just three years later. Clearly happy about his move, Jarvis told the club website; €œI€™ve really enjoyed my time here so far, so I€™m delighted to sign on the dotted line. €œIt€™s nice to get it done before the window opens as the club have shown they really wanted me. I had a great start here and hopefully I€™ll be back up-and-running soon for the rest of the season. €œMy first game especially was great. To get out in front of the home fans and score in a win was a perfect start which carried on for a while. €œUnfortunately I then picked up an injury but I€™m desperate to get back fully-fit, and back playing. To get the deal sorted is really nice and I€™m looking forward to helping the team as soon as I can.€ Norwich boss Alex Neill added; €œHe€™ll give us pace on the other flank which I don€™t think we€™ve had. Only a few years ago he commanded a transfer fee of over £10million and as a player he has a lot to offer.€
