Norwich confirm Pinto signing


Ivo Pinto has joined Norwich from Dinamo Zagreb on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

The Portuguese defender came through the Academy ranks at Porto before enjoying spells at Rio Ave and CFR Cluj. He moved to Zagreb in July 2013 and went on to make over 100 appearances in all competitions for the club, winning the Croatian league title in both 2014 and 2015, as well as the 2015 Croatian Cup.

He has agreed a deal that will see him move to Carrow Road, subject to paperwork, and he is excited at the prospect of playing in the Premier League.

"I'm very excited to come here and play for a big club in the Premier League," he told Norwich City TV.

"I'm looking forward to starting work to help the team achieve their goals."

Manager Alex Neil added: "Ivo has had Champions League experience this season, playing against Arsenal and Bayern Munich where he did very well.

"He’s a Portuguese Under-21 international and at only 26 has his best years ahead of him. He is an athletic and good defender and will bring us options at the back."
