Wolverhampton Wanderers complete the signing of promising 23-year-old

According to reports, Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed goalkeeper Will Norris on a three year deal from Cambridge United. The 23-year-old Norris was described as the best goalkeeper in League Two last season by Cambridge manager Shaun Derry.

He joins Wolves five days after long-serving keeper Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukaemia.

Wolves have already announced that Ikeme, who has been with the club since 2003, will keep the number one jersey for next season.  Norris will likely serve as the clubs backup behind the experienced John Ruddy.

During his time with Cambridge, Norris made 93 appearances after joining from non-league outfit Royston in 2012.

He impressed last season, saving five penalties, including one against Wolves during Cambridge’s 2-1 League Cup second round defeat at Molineux.

Cambridge Chief Executive Jez George said of the deal, “On Sunday we were approached by Wolves. They made their interest known, and we quickly negotiated a fee that we feel is a really good package for Cambridge United and at the same time a really good opportunity for Will.”
