Kenny Coker signs for Norwich City

Norwich City have completed the signing of striker Kenny Coker from Southend United for an undisclosed fee.

Coker, 17, has put pen to paper on a scholarship contract with the Canaries.

The young forward arrives from League Two side Southend United, where he made five senior appearances. The 17-year-old made his first-team debut for the Shrimpers in February 2020, becoming the club’s third youngest player to ever represent Southend at 16-years-old.

Having joined the Canaries after a successful trial period, Coker made his official debut for City’s Under-18s against Fulham in their 3-0 loss earlier in May. The young forward has already made impact for his new teammates, assisting a goal in City’s 3-2 loss to Aston Villa on the final day of the season.  

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