Premier League side Norwich City signed U.S. men’s national team player Josh Sargent on a four-year deal from German club Werder Bremen.
The two sides have agreed to a £5.5m deal for the player as Canaries head Daniel Farke continues to strengthen the squad ahead of their Premier League campaign.
“I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League, so it’s a very exciting opportunity for me,” Sargent told the team’s website. “I heard it’s a good group of guys and I talked with the head coach already and I really like what they’re trying to do here.
“I like to think my main position is a number nine, but I am also very versatile. No matter where I play, everyone can expect that I will give my all, my 100 percent and hopefully score some goals.”
Sargent arrives from the Bundesliga, where he recorded 15 goals in 83 appearances over the course of two and a half seasons.
Internationally, Sargent has earned 16 caps for the U.S. men’s national team after debuting on November 7, 2017 in a friendly against Portugal. Since then, he’s managed five goals and one assist for the Americans.
He quickly became the fifth-youngest player to score for the United States after dominating the attack during a friendly against Bolivia on May 28, 2018.
Sargent joins a recently promoted Norwich after the East Anglian side secured promotion back to the Premier League in April before going on to win the EFL Championship in May.
He is joined at Carrow Road by fellow former Werder Bremen star Milot Rashica, while Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour has signed on loan.
The Canaries are set to kick-off their Premier League campaign at home against Liverpool on August 14.
