Reading academy graduate Jack Stacey has joined Norwich City on a three-year deal after leaving Bournemouth.

Stacey- now 27- spent 13 years rising through the ranks in Berkshire but made just six first-team appearances before his 2017 exit.

Making his mark in two years with Luton Town, winning promotion from League Two and League One, he joined Bournemouth in 2019.

Almost 100 appearances, and one Premier League promotion later, Stacey has moved to Carrow Road after his contract at Dean Court expired.

Taking to social media after his exit from the south coast, Stacey said: "I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at AFC Bournemouth. Signing for the club back in July 2019 was a dream come true for me as it gave me the chance to play Premier League football, and I couldn’t have wished to have joined a better club.

"It is a really special club, and I feel really proud to have played a small part in getting them back up to the Premier League. Today I am moving on to a new club and a challenge I’m really excited about, but I will always be grateful for the time I’ve spent at Bournemouth.

I am really excited to be joining NorwichCity FC and cannot wait to get started. As soon as I met the manager and Sporting Director, I knew this club was the right choice for the next step of my career.

"I loved every second of playing in the Premier League, and wanted to join a club who matched my ambition and the desire to return and stay there. That is exactly what I’ve found, it’s why I’ve signed, and I will be doing everything to help achieve this."
