ALBION SIGN INTERNATIONAL MIDFIELDER

3 August 2016

Albion have added a Northern Ireland international to their ranks.





Brighton & Hove Albion have signed Northern Ireland international Oliver Norwood from Reading for an undisclosed fee.
 
The 25-year-old defensive midfielder completed his paperwork today and joins the club on a three-year deal.
 
Albion manager Chris Hughton said, “Oliver is another excellent addition to our squad.
 
“He has a good grounding coming from Manchester United, and has a wealth of experience playing in the Championship and at international level.
 
“He’s a box-to-box midfielder and an excellent passer of the ball, so he gives us extra options in midfield and adds further depth to our squad.”

Norwood began his career at Old Trafford, and following loan spells with Carlisle, Scunthorpe and Coventry, he eventually moved to Huddersfield in the summer of 2012 on a free transfer.
 
He went on to make 90 appearances for the Terriers, scoring nine times, before signing for Reading in August 2014. He has played 92 times for the Royals, finding the net five times.
 
Born in Burnley, Norwood represented England at under-16 and under-17 level, but switched to the Northern Ireland B squad in 2009.
 
He has since represented the Irish at under-19 and under-21 level, before winning his first senior cap in August 2010. He now has 38 caps for his country, and was part of the squad that progressed into the knockout stages of the Euro 2016 this summer.
