Norwich have signed Patrick Roberts on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City following their promotion to the Premier League. 

They revealed their first signing of the summer on Thursday .

Winger Roberts, who will join his new side on July 1, posed in front of an On The Ball, City green and yellow background and the caption read: 'Say hello to our first new face of the summer! 

'He's 22, from London and spent last season in sunny Spain.... it's Patrick!'

Roberts, who also signed a new contract at the Etihad until 2022 on Thursday, enjoyed a loan spell at La Liga side Girona last season which followed two-and-a-half seasons in the Scottish Premiership at Celtic.

Despite joining the Premier League champions for £11million from Fulham back in 2015, the 22-year-old has only made three senior appearances for the club.

Following his switch to the Canaries, Roberts told the club's official website: 'It's great to have the deal done. I've known about the interest for a while.

'I had a few other offers, the same as last season. But speaking to Stuart, he said he's been watching me for a while and he likes the way I play.
