Wednesday 06 July 2011
Barclays Premier League newcomers Norwich have confirmed winger Anthony Pilkington has become their sixth summer signing after the club agreed an undisclosed fee with Huddersfield.
The 23-year-old will sign a three-year deal after successfully completing a medical and subject to the relevant paperwork being completed.
The former Stockport player told the club's official website the transfer had been on the cards for some time and he was looking forward to testing himself in the Premier League.
"I think it's been in the pipeline for about a week or so now and I'm absolutely delighted to make the move having passed my medical," he said.
"It's great to get down here, I met all the lads today and met the gaffer so yes I'm absolutely delighted.
"The Premier League is the best league in the world. When you're a boy you dream of playing in it one day."
