Barry Nicholson has voiced his delight after completing a move from Aberdeen to Preston.
The Dons had hoped to keep Nicholson at Pittodrie but the former Scotland international turned down their offer of a new contract.
It was unclear for some time where Nicholson would be for the start of the new season but he has now joined the Canaries on an initial two-year deal.
He is relieved to have tied up the transfer and is now relishing the prospect of playing in the Championship.
"I'm glad to have my future decided," Nicholson told the club's official website.
"It's been a bit of a weird summer for me, not knowing where I was going to be playing next season. To finally come down and get things sorted out has been brilliant.
"Aberdeen offered me another contract, but the chance to come and play in England was the reason I chose to leave the SPL.
"I just felt that at this stage in my career I was ready to give it a go and luckily enough Preston wanted to give me the chance to come down."
