Norwich have signed Chilean international Marcelino Nunez from Universidad Catolica for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who has 10 caps for his country, becomes the first player from Chile to ever play for the club.
Nunez is the Yellow’s third signing following relegation, joining Isaac Hayden and Gabriel Sara.
“He’s a player that we believe can connect us from back to front. He can see a pass and open things up,” said Dean Smith when being interviewed for the club website.
“His all-round game is one that we feel is going to suit us and what we’ve needed.”
Norwich are still waiting for a work permit but he could be considered for their home game against Wigan Atheltic on Saturday.
“I like to get into the box, I like to go for goal. I like to play in set-plays and be involved in and outside of the box,” said Nunez being interviewed by the club website.
“Now I’m here at Norwich, I have my objectives and I want to achieve everything that I can with the club.”
Nunez scored 11 goals and assisted 12 in 84 games for Universidad Catolica, where he won the Primera Division and the Supercopa de Chile last season.
