Miquel completes move to Norwich City

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Norwich City and Arsenal have confirmed that defender Ignasi Miquel has moved to the Championship side on a permanent basis, securing a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be between 1 - 1.5 million pounds:

Given Arsenal's current depth at center half, this move may come as a bit of a surprise, but realistically, Miquel had had many chances to make a big impression at the senior level over the past three years, and in the minds of Arsenal's management, had not quite shown enough to make the grade. Lacking in a bit of pace, Miquel often struggled on Arsenal's left side, and at Norwich, he will fill an immediate need after Ryan Bennett's leg injury.

All the best to Mr. Miquel at Norwich! (And sorry, 3k_!)
