Robert Snodgrass sees Norwich City switch as chance to prove himself
Robert Snodgrass' decision to swap the captaincy of Leeds United for Norwich Citywas motivated by a desire to establish himself as a first-choice Scotland international and a top Premier League player.
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder has signed a three-season contract at Carrow Road after Leeds accepted a fee of £3 million (Dh17.1m) plus performance-related variables.
The Scot was also pursued by Aston Villa and Sunderland but agreed to join a club that had two bids - the second for £3.25m - rejected for him last summer.
"I firmly believe that the Premier League is the best league in the world, and when Norwich came in for me, I made the step because I believe that Norwich can kick on again," Snodgrass said. "Sometimes this window of opportunity doesn't come about too often, and I jumped at the chance."
Leeds are also in discussion with Doncaster Rovers and Notts County over the permanent transfer of Billy Paynter.
The 28-year-old striker, has a season remaining on his Elland Road contract but has been made available without a fee as Neil Warnock seeks to free up salary for new recruits.
Though Doncaster are favourites to conclude a deal for a player who delivered 29 goals from 52 appearances during his last season at a League One club, there is also interest in Paynter within the second-tier English Championship.
