LONDON : U.S. forward Josh Sargent has joined Premier League Norwich City from Werder Bremen on a four-year deal, the newly-promoted club said on Monday.
Financial details were not disclosed. Sky Sports television put the figure at 8 million pounds (US$11.08 million).
The 21-year-old scored 15 goals in 83 games in all competitions in his two and a half years with the German club's senior side.
"I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League, so it’s a very exciting opportunity for me," he told the club website (http://www.canaries.co.uk).
Sargent follows Kosovo international winger Milot Rashica, who joined Norwich in June after Werder Bremen were relegated on the Bundesliga's final day.
"We know we have to be a bit more creative in the transfer market," said Norwich's German manager Daniel Farke.
"We think we have a player in Josh who can contribute and develop into a top goalscorer on Premier League level. We see his potential and are delighted to have him with us."
