Norwich city recently managed to bring in the highly rated Martin Olsson from Blackburn Rovers. The 25-year-old has been linked with several clubs in England including those in the upper echelons of the Premier league table. The defender has been signed from Blackburn for £ 2.5 million. He stayed with the Lancashire club for one season in the effort to get them back into the Premier league. However, Blackburn were unable to put up any title challenge in the Championship and will be spending another season in the second division of English football as a result of it.

Olsson has said that the presence of former Newcastle United and Tottenham assistant manager is Hughton was crucial in him coming to Norwich city. Norwich only recently came back into the Premier league under the management of Paul Lambert, who left for Aston Villa at the start of last season. Hughton, who was appointed as his replacement, managed to help the club finish in a comfortable place in the Premier league. They have spent heavily over the course of the summer in order to preserve their Premier league status and Olsson is one of the big-name rivals.

Olsson has been playing for Blackburn for the last seven years and this is his first major move.

“My dream was always to play in the Premier League again. I went down into the Championship and it was a good lesson for me as well. I learned a lot of things. But I’m at a new club now, so I’m looking forward to being with the players and enjoying my time here. I had a few other clubs interested but I think Chris gave me a good idea of how he wanted to play and the ambition of this club,” said the 25-year-old defender after sealing his move to Norwich.
