Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel has declared that securing a move to Norwich City fulfills a long-term ambition to play in the Premier League.
With the Canaries closing in a third successive season in the top flight Van Wolfswinkel believes that he can help Chris Hughton's side progress even further next year.
He told the club's official website: "It's really an exciting time. I'm happy to be joining Norwich City and I'm looking forward to playing for the club. It has always been a dream of mine to play in England and in the Premier League and I'm even more excited that I can hopefully fulfil that dream at such a great club like Norwich City.
"This is the sort of club I need at this moment in my career. This is a club with great ambitions to become the team that they have been in the past in the top flight. Joining Norwich City is the perfect next step in my career.
"It's a realistic club with great people both at the club and in the city. Next year will hopefully be a year to improve. We want to do even better than the team has done this year. We need to work extra hard to make that happen, and if we do that, then a team and a club like Norwich can make great things happen."
The 24-year-old has scored nine times in 28 appearances for Sporting so far this season.
