Ignasi Miquel has sealed a permenant move to Norwich City the clubs official website have confirmed, with the Spain U21 international signing a three deal.
The 21-year-old has failed to make the grade at Arsenal since making his debut with the club in 2011, featuring 14 times for Arsene Wenger’s first team.
Miquel scored his first Arsenal goal in 2012, heading home a cross from Andrei Arshavin and spent last season on loan with Championship winners Leicester City.
The former Barcelona academy graduate was unable to make a substantial impact last season and was given the green light to move elsewhere in search of regular first team football.
Miquel told the Canaries website:
It’s brilliant for me to come here and I want to try and get in the team as soon as I can to help Norwich get back to the Premier League.

I had to move on from Arsenal and Norwich have given me the chance to prove myself. The Championship is a tough league, but I know what it’s about and I enjoyed it last season.
I’m really looking forward to getting started.
It is disappointing see the centre back, who can operate as a left back depart but he clearly is not quite the caliber of player we had hoped he would become. Calum Chambers has come in this summer and already leapfrogged him in the first team. All we can say is good luck to Miquel and hope we bring in a defender otherwise we are incredibly light at the back. Less than two hours left.
