Norwich complete signing of Mark Bunn from Blackburn
Wednesday 29 August 2012
Norwich today completed the signing of goalkeeper Mark Bunn from Blackburn for an undisclosed fee.
The Canaries snapped up the 27-year-old on a two-year deal in a bid to bring further competition to England stopper John Ruddy.
Bunn previously worked with Norwich goalkeeping coach Dave Watson, assistant manager Colin Calderwood and first-team coach Paul Trollope at Northampton.
He told his new club's official website, http://www.canaries.co.uk: "I'm delighted to be here to start a new challenge and I'm looking forward to it.
"I'm looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and getting to know the other lads. It's a good time for Norwich - it will be a tough season and I think we'll do well."
On linking up again with Watson, he added: "He's a great coach and guy and I've known him for a while.
"It's probably a big factor why I came here, and working with the likes of Dave and John Ruddy too can only improve me as a keeper and I look forward to working with them both.
"I've come here as I want to challenge and I want to play and hopefully whoever is playing well will be in goal for Norwich."
Manager Chris Hughton said: "I'm delighted to have signed Mark. He is a keeper that will give us valuable experience and competition at first-team level."
Meanwhile, Norwich also agreed a deal for midfielder Tom Adeyemi to join npower League One side Brentford on a six-month loan.
