Former Ipswich Town loanee Will Norris has joined Premier League side Burnley.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan at Portman Road from Wolves, making 20 appearances as the Blues finished 11th in League One.

His route to the Wolves first team is blocked by Portuguese international Rui Patricio and John Ruddy, with the goalkeeper always likely to move on this summer.

He has now completed a move to Burnley, we understand, where he will look to push England international Nick Pope and compete with young Northern Irishman Bailey Peacock-Farrell. A deal is done and should be announced soon.

Ipswich Town look set to replace Norris with the signing of David Cornell, who left Northampton at the end of last season.
