Norwich City have signed Sunderland defender Michael Turner for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old, who has signed a two-year deal at Carrow Road, played 77 times for the Black Cats following a move from Hull City in 2009.

"I'm delighted. The deal is all signed now and I'm happy to be here," Turner told the Norwich website.

"I've picked up a lot of experience throughout my career, and hopefully I can add a bit to the squad here."

Turner featured 29 times for Sunderland last season, but boss Martin O'Neill has said he was happy to let the centre-half leave, despite an injury concern over fellow central defender Wes Brown.

The former Brentford player becomes Norwich's fourth summer signing, following the arrivals of Robert Snodgrass, and Steven Whittaker.

"I'm delighted to be able to bring Michael into the squad as he is a player with a wealth of Premier League experience," said Canaries boss Hughton.

"Like with Snodgrass, Butterfield, and Whittaker, it's nice to bring players in with a good amount of time left in pre-season so they are able to gel with the squad ahead of the first game of the season."
