BURNLEY defender Ben Gibson has officially completed his permanent move to Norwich City.

The centre-half ended a nightmare spell with the Clarets when he joined the Canaries on loan last September.

And after their promotion to the Premier League after winning the Championship, an obligation to buy clause has been activated, the fee believed to be £8million.

There were big hopes for Gibson on his arrival at Turf Moor for a joint club record £15million back in August 2018 but he made just six appearances for the club.

His last Clarets appearance came in the Carabao Cup in August 2019, the 28-year-old being allowed to train with his hometown club Middlesbrough at one stage after airing frustrations about not sealing a move away.

Gibson then joined Norwich where he made 27 appearances last season, his season ended in March by an ankle injury.

“I am absolutely delighted,” he said. “What we achieved last season was remarkable.

“It couldn’t have gone any better, bar the injury for me, for the team and the squad. We had clear goals, we set out to achieve them and we fulfilled them in every way.

“We didn’t just get promoted, we were champions and we had record points total. So, it has literally been a dream move.

“It (the Premier League) is where everyone wants to be. It is where I have been for different chapters in my career.

“We can’t wait to have another crack at it.”
