Norwich City have agreed to sign DR Congo midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu on a two-year contract.
The 28-year-old’s transfer to the Premier League newcomers will go through on 1 July when his current deal with West Bromwich Albions expires.
Mulumbu, who joined West Brom from Paris St-Germain on a permanent basis in July 2009, made 151 league appearances for the Baggies.
“The fact that we’ve been able to pick Youssouf up on a free transfer is a fantastic piece of business,” boss Alex Neil told the Norwich website..
“His arrival will add to the competition for places. We have a strong squad with a lot of players that have done well in the Premier League and Youssouf will bring that competition to the squad.
“He has vast experience of the Premier League but he’s still at a good age. You generally say that a player comes into their peak between 27 and 32, and he’s right in the middle of that.”
He is the second player to join the Cannaries following the signing of his former West Brom teammate Graham Dorrans in May.
