Javier Garrido has completed his loan move to Norwich City after being granted international clearance.

The former Manchester City full-back has joined the Canaries on a season-long deal from Lazio and is now available for selection in Saturday's match against Queens Park Rangers.

Norwich last week announced the signing of Garrido, subject to a work permit, after boss Chris Hughton had previously made it clear the left-back was a transfer target.

Having completed the move for the 27-year-old, he could be in contention to take the place of Marc Tierney after the latter's poor performance in the thrashing by Fulham.

Norwich said on their official Twitter account: "Defender Javier Garrido has received international clearance and will be eligible for selection for Saturday's game versus QPR."

Garrido, who will wear No.18 for Norwich, has previous experience in the Premier League, starting 39 games for Manchester City between the summers of 2007 and 2010.
