New Norwich City signing Kieran Dowell has described his move to the Canaries as a "massive step" in his career.

England Under-21 international Dowell has joined Norwich from Everton for an undisclosed fee and put pen to paper on a three-year deal at Carrow Road.

The 22-year-old midfielder spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Wigan Athletic in the Championship and impressed with five goals in 12 appearances.

He made his first of only two Premier League appearances for Everton against Norwich in the 2015/16 campaign and makes the move to Norfolk after the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Daniel Farke's men finished rock bottom of the standings, winning only five of their 38 matches, and are now looking to rebuild ahead of another term back in the Championship.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Dowell said: "I'm delighted - I'm glad to get it out the way early as well. I spoke with Stuart [Webber] and the boss [Daniel Farke] not so long after the season finished so it's nice to get it sorted.

"There was a bit of interest [from other clubs] towards the end of the season and when Norwich came up, with the history of the club and what they've got going on with the boss and the players they've got here, I think it was a really good fit for me.

"It's a massive step in my career which is why I had to make sure it's the right decision for me."

Meanwhile, England are 6.00 to win Euro 2020.
