Defender Carlos Cuellar joins Norwich City

20 August 2014

Norwich City have signed versatile former Aston Villa and Sunderland defender Carlos Cuellar.

The 32-year-old, who left the Black Cats in June after six years in the Premier League, has agreed a one-year deal at Carrow Road.

"Carlos brings bags of experience as he's played at the highest level in three countries. He can play as a centre-back and a right-back, and we've brought him here to strengthen the options we have in defence," manager Neil Adams told the club's official website.

"He's a top-quality player, so we welcome him into the squad and it will be great to have him available."

Meanwhile, Adams has been further boosted by the news defender Michael Turner has signed a new two-year contract.

The 30-year-old, who has started all three of the Canaries' matches so far this season, has committed himself to the Sky Bet Championship club until 2016 with an option for an additional 12 months.

Adams added: "Michael has been outstanding since I came into the job.

"That includes last season as well. He's carried on the form he showed in those final few games into pre-season and then the start of this season.

"He fully deserves his new contract and we're absolutely delighted that he's signed on the dotted line."
