Alongside Dimitris Giannoulis, ORJAN Nyland was one of two Norwich City signings when he joined the club in the January transfer window of the 2020-21 season.

Nyland began his senior career at Norwegian side Hodd in 2007, but it wasn't until 2010 that he became their first choice keeper. He went on to rack up more than 50 appearances before leaving in 2012.

He spent the next two years at Molde under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Nyland then got a move to the Bundesliga when FC Ingolstadt came calling in 2015. They were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga, but it wasn't long before Nyland moved to England for the first time.

He joined Aston Villa ahead of the 2018-19 season for their promotion-winning season to the Premier League. In 2019-20, he made seven Premier League appearances for Dean Smith's side with Emi Martinez often the first choice option.

In January 2021, he was signed to compete with Tim Krul during a season in which Michael McGovern and Daniel Barden had also been called into first-team action.

On the international stage, Nyland has represented Norway Under-18s, U21s and made 28 appearances for the senior national team, including a selection with City midfielder Alex Tettey.
