Norwich City have signed midfielder Matt Gill from League One rivals Exeter City.

The 28-year-old's contract with Exeter expires at the end of this month and he has agreed to sign for Norwich in a two-year deal from July 1.

The 5ft 11in former Fakenham High School pupil and Old Catton Juniors player made 164 appearances in all competitions for Exeter, scoring 14 goals.

After playing in the Devon side's 1-0 Blue Square Premier Play-off Final triumph in 2008, the 28-year-old played a key role in their promotion to League One this season, having finished runners-up to Brentford.

Norwich City boss Bryan Gunn told the club's official website: "The winning mentality of a player who has been with a club which has enjoyed success for the last two seasons was very important to me.

"Matt has experience at this level with other clubs and he's a very competitive player - but he's also a player who likes to pass the ball and I believe the Norwich fans will take to him due to the way he plays, the attitude and commitment he shows.
