Youngster pens one-year professional deal

NORWICH City Under-21s have confirmed the signing of young defender Afolabi Coker on a one-year professional deal following a successful trial with the Club's Development Squad.

The 19-year-old has featured for City's youth side in both pre-season and the 2015-16 Barclays Under-21s Premier League so far this term, and joins having left Leeds United earlier this summer.

After agreeing terms to remain with the Academy on a full-time basis, Coker told "I'm very pleased because I've settled in really well.

"Everyone has been very welcoming, and I've formed strong bonds with the people here. It's all gelled together nicely and everything has been smooth.

"I just want to kick on now and remain injury-free, then see where that takes me."
