James Husband has signed a three-year contract at Norwich City, ending what has been a difficult time for him at Middlesbrough.
The 23-year-old has spent the past three years at the Riverside Stadium, during which time he has had a loan spell at Huddersfield Town and two at Fulham. As for appearing for Boro, he was frustrated with a shoulder injury last season and made just one appearance in the Premier League.
Husband has now ended his spell at the Teesside club by joining Norwich for an undisclosed fee, and has put pen-to-paper on a deal designed to keep him at Carrow Road until 2020. The former Doncaster Rovers fullback is, understandably, hoping for a fresh start at his new club.
“It didn’t start off well last season,” Husband told the Norwich website. “I got injured at the start of the year and was basically playing catch-up for the rest of the year. I’ve come here to play football and to enjoy my time as much as possible. I’m looking forward to my time here.”
Norwich, who appointed Daniel Farke as head coach earlier this summer, have now made six signings this summer having already secured Mario Vrancic, Christoph Zimmerman, Marley Watkins, Harrison Reed, and Angus Gunn ahead of their Championship campaign.
