New Norwich City development signing Harmony Okwumo is hoping to hit the ground running with the Canaries after a move from Charlton. 

The young full back was part of City’s academy intake last week after converting a trial into a permanent contract as he signed professional terms at the club. 

Okwumo, a right back, joined from Charlton Athletic and will bolster the Canaries development squads next term alongside new academy goalkeeper Tom Finch who signed from Cambridge United. 

The teenager is hoping to wipe the slate clean after his spell at the Valley and is excited to get going in Norfolk as he takes the next step in his development. 

"Obviously, I'm very happy," Okwumo told official club channels. "I want to thank God for giving me this opportunity, I'm excited to get started.

"I bring a lot of liveliness to the team, I'm very talkative on the pitch and very fast, I feel like I could help the team a lot.

"I was at Charlton Athletic before joining the club. I was there for about four years, and there was a lot of ups and downs. Now that I'm here, I want to forget about the past and focus on now.

"I'm very excited to get started, I've been training quite a lot. I'm just ready to show everyone my talents."

Norwich also announced that four youngsters already at the club had signed professional deals including striker Errol Mundle-Smith, Harry Brooke, Alfie Doy and highly-rated Miles Bracking. 

The Canaries also confirmed 11 new scholars, including Finn Corke, a striker who amassed 35 goal contributions last season in younger age groups and Jack Ruddy, son of City legend John, with those expected to be exposed to minutes in Greg Crane’s under-18 side next season. 

Norwich are close to confirming a deal to bring former Tottenham Hotspur academy chief Dean Rastrick to the club as head of football development. He will replace Steve Weaver, who left the post earlier this summer after seven years at Carrow Road.
