London - DR Congo midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is to join English Premier League newcomers Norwich from top-flight rivals West Bromwich Albion, the Canaries announced Monday.
The 28-year-old will make his move to Carrow Road on a free transfer official when his Baggies contract expires on July 1.
Mulumbu, who has signed a two-year contract, is Norwich's second signing since their victory in the second tier Championship play-off final, with Scotland midfielder Graham Dorrrans have made his move to the East Anglian club permanent.
Norwich manager Alex Neil, who oversaw the Canaries return to the top flight after taking over in January, was delighted to have signed Mulumbu, who made 151 Premier League appearances for the Baggies.
"The fact that we have been able to pick Youssouf up on a free transfer is a fantastic piece of business," Neil told Norwich's official website.
"His arrival will add to the competition for places. We have a strong squad with a lot of players that have done well in the Premier League and Youssouf will bring that competition to the squad.
"He has vast experience of the Premier League, but he is still at a good age."
Neil added: "You generally say that a player comes into their peak between 27 and 32, and he is right in the middle of that.
"He is another fantastic player to add to an already-strong squad going into the Premier League."
