Robert Snodgrass has completed his move to Norwich City.

The Scotland international signed a three-year deal with the Canaries on Thursday evening after undergoing a medical at Carrow Road before finalising the terms of his switch to the club.

The 24-year-old leaves Leeds United four years after arriving at the club from Livingston. Signed by then Whites boss Gary McAllister in July 2008, Robert made 191 appearances for the club, scoring 41 goals.

Robert, who won his first international caps while at Elland Road, was named the club's Player of the Year twice, and he was also named club captain in February this year.

Manager Neil Warnock had already spoken of his disappointment at the prospect of losing the player and he said: "I can honestly say that in all my time in football, I've never worked as hard in trying to keep a player. He was offered the best contract, the captaincy, and we would have built a team around him so I am very disappointed.

"He's made it clear what he wants to do and he's had his head turned. He wants to play in the Premier League."

Robert's final appearance in a Leeds shirt came on Monday evening when he played the opening 68 minutes of the 6-0 friendly victory against Devon outfit Tavistock.
