Ben Marshall signs for Norwich City

30 June 2018

Norwich City are delighted to confirm the signing of Ben Marshall from Wolverhampton Wanderers on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Marshall, 27, can play as a winger or full-back on either side and spent the second half of last year on loan at Millwall after beginning the season at Molineux. In total last season he played 25 times, scoring three goals.

Born in Salford, Greater Manchester, Marshall began his youth career at Manchester United before joining Crewe Alexandra in 2003.

His professional career began with Stoke City before he joined Leicester City and then Blackburn Rovers where he made over 120 appearances.

Marshall is also a former England Under-21 international, having played twice for the Young Lions in 2012.

Speaking to after signing, Marshall said: “It’s a good feeling. It’s nice to come and see the training ground and meet a few of the lads already so I feel very good.

“I heard about the interest this summer. When I heard about it, I was very excited and I wanted it to be pushed through.

“The club is massive. Playing against them for other clubs, obviously the fans are always sold out.

 “I’m really looking forward to training hard. It’s nice to get in quite early, previous times I’ve come in quite late and sort of had to pick up.

“But I’m glad to be here and can’t wait to get cracking.”

Head Coach Daniel Farke said: “I’m very pleased. We made it clear it’s necessary for us to improve the squad.

“Ben is a pretty experienced player at this level with more than 200 appearances in the Championship.

“It’s good that he’s a flexible player. He can play a number of different positions and wherever he played, he showed he was able to be there with some goals and assists."
