Former Norwich City goalkeeper David Marshall has signed for Derby County from recently relegated Wigan Athletic.

The Scot made 105 appearances for the Canaries during a two-and-a-half year stint at Carrow Road. Marshall joined from Celtic initially on loan before making that permanent in the summer of 2007.

It was with City that he experienced his first taste of English football, but following the Canaries relegation to League One in 2009, Marshall opted to join Cardiff City.

He went to make 278 appearances for the Welsh club before having spells with Hull and Wigan.

Marshall will now link up with Phillip Cocu’s side and is expected to compete with Kelle Roos for the first-choice spot in the side.

Derby’s boss told the club’s official channels: “We’re really pleased to welcome David Marshall to Derby County.

“David is an experienced goalkeeper and he has played at the highest level in both England and Scotland.

“He has also performed at international level for Scotland and I believe that David will be a positive addition to not only our goalkeeping department but also our squad.”
