Norwich City have signed Leeds United captain Robert Snodgrass for an undisclosed fee, handing the 24-year-old a three-year deal.

The striker left the Leeds training base in Cornwall earlier this week to hold talks with the Canaries.

He joined United from Livingston in 2008 and scored 41 goals in 191 games.

"He is a player I have admired for a number of years now and he's at a good age at 24," Norwich manager Chris Hughton told the club website.

"He's also got that international experience with Scotland and is used to playing in big matches both with his country and at Elland Road."

The Premier League club had an approach for Snodgrass rejected last week but have managed to capture the forward, who won both Leeds fans' player of the year and players' player of the year awards last season.

Before the deal was finalised, United boss Neil Warnock said: "Negotiations [over a new contract] have been going on for weeks.

"I was hoping he would have had a change of heart and I can honestly say that in all my time in football, I've never worked as hard in trying to keep a player.

"He was offered the best contract, the captaincy, and we would have built a team around him so I am very disappointed.

"He's made it clear what he wants to do and he's had his head turned. He wants to play in the Premier League. He believes his Scotland international career may be better served in the Premier League, but I'm not so sure."

Norwich are also in talks to sign Sunderland defender Michael Turner, who
