Norwich City have signed Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Mark Bunn for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old has signed a two-year deal, with the option for a third, at Carrow Road.

He joined Rovers from Northampton in 2008 but only made 15 appearances and had loan spells at Leicester City and Sheffield United in 2009 and 2010.

"He will give us experience and competition at first team level," boss Chris Hughton told the club website.

Bunn has not played a first-team game since Rovers' 2-1 FA Cup defeat by Newcastle in January after missing the end of last season with a hip injury.

He will provide competition for England goalkeeper John Ruddy and England Under-21 squad member Declan Rudd at Norwich.

"I'm delighted to be here to start a new challenge and I'm looking forward to it," Bunn said.

"I'm looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and getting to know the other lads. It's a good time for Norwich - it will be a tough season and I think we'll do well."
