Martin Olsson's agent claims that the defender had other options before deciding to move to Norwich City.

Martin Olsson's agent has revealed that his client had offers from other clubs before choosing to sign for Norwich City.

The Canaries confirmed that the 25-year-old would be moving to Carrow Road after signing a four-year contract yesterday.

Hasan Cetinkaya told Expressen: "It's a step in the right direction for Martin, both football-wise and financially. He joins a club which is investing and with a good atmosphere.

"There was big interest, both in England and other leagues. But Blackburn didn't want to sell in the past."

Norwich manager Chris Hughton said that he is delighted to have acquired the Sweden international.
