There’s another American in England.

Sebastian Soto has sealed his rumored deal to Norwich City, a four-year deal announced two days after the Canaries played the final match of their one-and-done season in the Premier League.

He’s been with Hannover 96 in Germany but played just twice in the 2.Bundesliga this year and had been linked with a move to Norwich since May.

Soto, who is celebrating his 20th birthday, is one of three players announced by the Canaries on Tuesday.

From Norwich City’s site:

“It’s a proud feeling,” Soto said. “It’s super exciting to join Norwich City. The facilities here are really impressive. From the minute I arrived here, it’s given me a lot of excitement. Being a young player, it’s nice to hear that the head coach gives us a chance. It was a big factor in me moving here. I’m striker that loves scoring goals. I love being part of a good team that plays good football.”

Norwich also signed Arsenal 18-year-old Matthew Dennis after his contract expired and added Sunderland’s Bali Mumba.
