Norwich have signed teenager Bali Mumba from Sunderland.

The 18-year-old, who can play at right-back or in midfield, has signed a four-year deal with the Canaries.

“It feels very good and I’m raring to go,” said Mumba, who had been at Sunderland since 2010.

“The club is big with a good history behind it and I’m looking forward to getting started so I can show everyone around the club what I can do.

“Fans can expect hard work and 100 percent in all that I do. I believe I’m a positive person with a good energy,” Mumba told the Norwich website.

Canaries boss Daniel Farke said: “We’re really happy we’ve been able to sign Bali. He’s an exciting young talent.

“It’s important not to put too much pressure on his shoulders, but he’s the type of full-back we want, driving forward and being brave, but also aggressive with the ball and with good endurance.

“He’s a great lad and full of potential. We’ll give him time to improve and we think we’ve got a really exciting talent.”
