Discussing his move to Carrow Road, Adegboyega said: “I’m over the moon to sign for Norwich. It’s always good when a big club like this approaches you.

“When you see people from the same country [in the first-team], it makes that decision so much easier. Seeing what they’re doing in the first-team, it was an easy decision.

“Playing senior football has helped me a lot. The physicality level changed from academy level to first-team level, it’s obviously a big jump. But playing in the League of Ireland definitely helped me.”

The transfer is subject to international clearance and approval from the regulatory governing bodies.
