Michael Turner has completed his move from Sunderland to Norwich City. The defender moves to Carrow Road for an undisclosed fee and has signed a 2-year deal to become Canaries' fourth summer signing.

The move comes as no real surprise, with Martin O'Neill admitting this morning that he was unable to offer the player a new contract at the moment, probably due to the the clubs carrying so many central defenders at present.

Turner, whilst not the worst of them by any means, was certainly the most sellable. He had this to say to the official Norwich website:

I'm delighted. The deal is all signed now and I'm happy to be here.

I've heard a lot of people say good things about what he does and has done in the game, so I'm just pleased to be a part of his team.

Nothing much left to say but wish Michael Turner all the best. He was never a world-beater but he certainly won't be considered a failure on Wearside. I think Norwich have grabbed themselves a solid signing and a bit of a bargain to boot.
