Norwich City have agreed to the signing of Matt Jarvis on a permanent basis, who has been on loan from West Ham since summer.
The 29 year old winger will sign a three-and-a-half-year contract on January 2, when the transfer window opens.
The fee for the winger has not been disclosed, but according to reports it is estimated to be around £2.5 million, which means that the Hammers are losing
a lot of money having signed him for a total fee of £10.75m from Wolves in 2012.
Matt has made seven appearances for Norwich till now and has scored two goals, even in his debut against Bournemouth, aiding for a 3-1 victory.
Due to a minor injury, he has been out of action of lately for a few weeks.
He told the club’s official website: “I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far, so I’m delighted to sign on the dotted line.
“It’s nice to get it done before the window opens as the club have shown they really wanted me. I had a great start here and hopefully

“Unfortunately I then picked up an injury but I’m desperate to get back fully fit, and back playing. To get the deal sorted is really nice

Norwich City boss Alex Neil is convinced of Matt’s ability and so took the extra step of signing the winger from West Ham permanently, before the transfer
Alex thinks that the team did not have much pace in the flank and justified the signing by telling that Jarvis would provide the needed fire-power and pace
for the team along the flank.
It is well known that only a few years back Jarvis commanded a transfer fee of over £10m and his untapped potential would now be utilized at Norwich City.
