Norwich City have signed West Ham United midfielder Matt Jarvis and Dynamo Kiev striker Dieumerci Mbokani on season-long loans.

Jarvis, 29, made 90 appearances for the Hammers after joining in August 2012.

The Canaries have an option to buy Mbokani, who is a 29-year-old DR Congo international.

"He's a big, strong number nine," said City manager Alex Neil. "He can take the ball in, he's mobile and he's a real threat in the box."

Meanwhile, Ricky van Wolfswinkel, 26, has joined Real Betis on loan.

The Dutch forward signed for Norwich from Sporting Lisbon for a club-record fee of £8.5m in July 2013 but scored only one Premier League goal as the club were relegated from the top division and he spent 2014-15 on loan at French club St Etienne.

And midfielder Bradley Johnsonhas left the club to sign for Derby for £6m.

What the fans say

"I have mixed emotions about Bradley Johnson's transfer to Derby: he was outstanding for us last season, but I think he'd struggle to match that form in the Premier League, especially with the competition in midfield.

"We've brought in Dieumerci Mbokani from Dinamo Kiev on loan, of whom I know nothing about and Matt Jarvis from West Ham - not on many City fans' wish lists, especially after some of the names we were linked with. No centre back though."

Aaron Rodgers, Capital Canaries
