Cambridge Keeper Joins Wolves

Cambridge Keeper Joins Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed goalkeeper Will Norris from Cambridge United for an undisclosed fee.

The 23 year old stopper put pen to paper on a three year contract at the Molinuex yesterday and Wolves hold an extra year's option on the deal.

Manay fans may remember him from last season's EFL Cup tie where he saved a penalty on our soil, and he will now join the battle for the first team shirt alongside John Ruddy, Harry Burgoyne and Jack Ruddy.

Speaking to the Official Website as his signing was announced, Norris explained.

'I am buzzing to be here. This is a fantastic opportunity at a fantastic football club and was something I just couldn`t say no to. I have been playing regularly for Cambridge over the last 18 months or so and now know I have a battle for a place which is a great challenge.'

Joining up with John Ruddy was also a big thing for him and he had plenty of thanks for Cambridge in allowing the move to go through.

'I used to watch John a lot growing up - he used to play for Cambridge United as well - and it is going to be great for me to be working with him at Wolves. Cambridge have been fantastic with me both throughout my career and also the process of this move. They brought the right people in to develop me and it has been a fantastic experience for me. I am a little bit sad to be leaving but obviously I am leaving for a great opportunity and a new challenge here at Wolves.'

Norris will now fly out to Austria to meet up with his new colleagues and he was also looking forward to working with goalkeeping coach Rui Barbosa given the keepers he's coached in the past.

'I have been told about the goalkeepers the coach here has worked with and he has a massively impressive CV. I am looking forward to getting in the building and learning as much as I can from him and the other goalkeepers as well. It will be good to get out to Austria and be together as a squad for a good week or so. It will be good to integrate with the lads and get me off to a good start.'

Making the step up as Cambridge's No 1 last season, he took in 54 matches across all competitions and his penalty stop from James Henry was one of a number he pilled off.

'It was nice to save the penalty - but we lost the game so it didn`t really matter! I saved a few last season and got a bit of attention for those penalty saves although I`d rather we hadn`t given them away. Hopefully the fans who were there at Molineux might just remember me and I am looking forward now to trying to get in the team and having them on my side. Wolves are an absolute giant of a club - I drove all the way here with a smile on my face and am really excited about what lies ahead.'
