Bennett can’t wait for his new challenge at Norwich City

Elliott Bennett is looking forward to an 'unbelievable opportunity' with Norwich City after penning a three-year deal at Carrow Road.

The 22-year-old arrives for an undisclosed fee and becomes manager Paul Lambert's third summer signing after the captures of James Vaughan and Steve Morison.

The relevant paperwork still needs to be completed on the deal, but Bennett is looking forward to making his mark on the top flight.

'It's an unbelievable opportunity for me to fight for a place in the team which will be playing in the Premier League,' he told the club's official website. 'I like the mentality at Norwich City that has seen them get back-to-back promotions and I'm grateful to Paul Lambert for giving me the chance to be part of what's happening at the club.'
