Ayala joins Norwich

Barclays Premier League newcomers Norwich have completed the signing of Liverpool defender Daniel Ayala.

The 20-year-old spent four years at Anfield but made only five first-team appearances. He spent time on loan in the npower Championship with both Hull and Derby last season.

The Spaniard becomes Paul Lambert's eighth summer addition and joins on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Lambert feels Ayala will add some much-needed depth for the challenges ahead.

Speaking last week to BBC Radio Norfolk, he said: "I just think you've got to have a lot of cover throughout the coming games and a long hard season.

"He's a young player and obviously played against us for Hull and Derby and I thought he was strong and aerial as well, he was somebody we thought could benefit the football club."
