Norwich City sign Liam Gibbs from Ipswich Town

Norwich City have completed the signing of midfielder Liam Gibbs from Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee.

Gibbs, 18, has put pen to paper on a professional contract that will run through to the summer of 2025.

The midfielder arrives from Ipswich Town, where he made four senior appearances across Sky Bet League One and the EFL Trophy after joining the club's academy in 2011.

Bury St Edmunds-born, Gibbs wore the captain's armband at under-15s and under-16s level for Ipswich.

At under-18 level, Gibbs scored one goal and got two assists in five appearances during last season's FA Youth Cup campaign, as Ipswich were eventually defeated by Liverpool at the semi-final stage.

Discussing his move to the Canaries, Gibbs said: "I am very, very excited. I am looking forward to starting my journey as soon as possible.

"It is a new step for me and for my career. I am looking to make the most of it, showcase my talent and hopefully I can help the club keep moving forward.

"I have seen young players in the past that have gone through the academy and into the first team. Norwich have a reputation for bringing through young players and I just want to be the next one to get into the first team and make things happen.

"I can see a clear pathway for me. Now I am just excited to get started, fulfil my potential and show everyone what I can do."

Gibbs will initially form part of the club's development and academy setup.
