City sign Clarke from Peterborough

24 June 2021

Norwich City have completed the signing of midfielder Flynn Clarke from Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee.

Clarke, 18, has put pen to paper on a professional contract with the Canaries.

The midfielder arrives from recently promoted Peterborough United, where he made 11 senior appearances. Clarke made his first-team league debut for the Posh in September 2020 against Accrington Stanley at age 17.

Clarke went on to represent Peterborough in three more league matches in their League One promotion campaign, bagging his first senior assist against Rochdale in December 2020.

The young midfielder also impressed in the Posh’s Papa John’s Trophy run earlier in the 2020/21 season, being awarded Player of the Round after he scored three goals in three games in the group stage of the tournament.

Discussing his move to the Canaries, Clarke said: “This is a great club and I feel absolutely delighted to sign here. I’m over the moon.

“Norwich have a reputation for the work they do with their younger players. They try to make a pathway for them and that really opened my eyes and grabbed my attention.

“The club also recently got promoted to the Premier League, so it feels like a no-brainer for me.

“I’d like to try to make a breakthrough to the senior team, I’d like to show all the fans, staff and players around me what I’m capable of and hopefully I can get a shirt.”

Clarke will initially form part of the club’s development and academy setup.
