Norwich have confirmed the signing of 19-year-old Birmingham winger Nathan Redmond.

The England Under-21 international becomes manager Chris Hughton's third signing of the close-season and moves to Carrow Road on a four-year contract.

"I'm very happy. It looks like a fantastic club, I'm just looking forward to getting started now," Redmond told the club's official website.

"I know that there is only one football club in this city and it has an excellent fan base. The people around the football club and in the city that I have spoken to so far have attracted me to this Club so much, it's made me realise just how much this club means to the people of this city."

Hughton worked with Redmond when he was manager at St Andrew's and said he was pleased to finally be able to get his man. 

"Nathan is a young and exciting player that I had the pleasure of working with at Birmingham. He is a player that was of interest to us for some time and the situation has now come about that we can get him on our terms," he said.

"He's someone we can bring in to the forward areas and primarily has played on either wing in his career so far, but can also play off the front. He's very keen to develop his own game, he's one of these lads that likes to be on the training pitch and is usually one of the last ones off the training pitch.

"I'm sure the move won't phaze him but this is still a part of his development and one he is very much looking forward to."

Redmond made 81 appearances during his four year spell at Birmingham after Hughton gave him his debut.
