Turner has played 110 Barclays Premier League matches with Hull City and Sunderland.

"I’m happy to have been able to welcome him to Norwich City"
- Chris Hughton

Hughton told the Norwich City website: “I’m delighted to be able to bring Michael into the squad as he is a player with a wealth of Premier League experience.

“He is joining us at a good age and I’m happy to have been able to welcome him to Norwich City.

“Like with Snodgrass, Butterfield, and Whittaker it’s nice to bring players in with a good amount of time left in pre-season so they are able to gel with the squad ahead of the first game of the season."
