Han­ley’s move to Nor­wich nets Mag­pies £3.5m

The Chronicle - - Nufc - By LEE RY­DER

NEW­CAS­TLE United are un­der­stood to have banked £3.5m for Grant Han­ley af­ter his trans­fer to Nor­wich City.

Sources at Car­row Road say the Canaries are pleased with the deal af­ter land­ing the Scot­land in­ter­na­tional at the end of the Au­gust trans­fer win­dow.

Han­ley has signed a four-year deal with Nor­wich and is look­ing for­ward to his new chal­lenge.

Af­ter leav­ing Scot­land’s train­ing camp to com­plete the deal, Han­ley told Nor­wich’s TV chan­nel: “Be­ing able to come to a mas­sive club and get games is a big mo­ti­va­tion for me.

“It’s a club with high as­pi­ra­tions and a fresh start for me.

“As a de­fender, I’m a bit of an old-fash­ioned no-non­sense cen­tre­half and you pride your­self on clean sheets. We’ve got work to do on the train­ing ground to im­prove that. I’m look­ing to hit the ground run­ning.”

Mean­while, Nor­wich boss Daniel Farke said: “Although he hasn’t been play­ing too of­ten with New­cas­tle lately, he has up­com­ing games with Scot­land which will be good for him be­fore he comes to join us later next week.

“He has very solid ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing in the Cham­pi­onship and is a leader too, hav­ing been cap­tain of Black­burn Rovers.”
