After negotiations which ran for over two weeks, the Scottish was eventually unveiled on Friday morning, July 2, and will play on loan at Norwich for the entire season.
He said via Football London:
"I’m very excited to be here. I can’t wait for the season ahead. I’ve been looking forward to coming here, playing as much as possible and helping Norwich City compete in the Premier League.
"I spoke to the head coach [Daniel Farke] here. He called me and we had a nice talk about how he wants to play and how he sees me fitting in. Everything he said was what I want to do on the pitch, get the ball down and play nice football.
"He spoke really highly of his team and I wanted to come join here and help. There are very exciting times ahead, coming in for pre-season and seeing all the lads. Let’s get to it."
Meanwhile, Arsenal can confirm that their left-back Kieran Tierney has committed his future to the club on a long-term basis.
The 24-year-old Scottish player joined the Gunners two years ago in a deal of around £25 million from Celtic and he has become one of Mikel Arteta's strongmen at the Emirates Stadium.
Tierney made an instant impact at the North London club in his debut season after helping them win the FA Cup title despite constant battles with injuries.
While reacting to his new deal, the defender who recently crashed out of the European Championship with Scotland said he had no problems renewing his deal with the club.
