The Dutchman sees the switch as ideal at this stage of his career.
"Joining Norwich City is the perfect next step in my career. It's a realistic club with great people both at the Club and in the city. I think this is the club for me and I hope to help them in every way I can. They have lots of ambition and I'll be delighted to be a part of that," he told Norwich's website.
"Next year will hopefully be a year to improve. We want to do even better than the team has done this year. We need to work extra hard to make that happen, and if we do that, then a team and a club like Norwich can make great things happen. "
