​Ben Gibson feeling settled after leaving Burnley for Norwich

Ben Gibson is happy after completing his permanent move from Burnley to Norwich City.

The 28-year-old spent the past season on loan with the Canaries, making 26 loan starts as they won the Championship.

Now he is back at the Carrow Road club, after signing permanently following the team's promotion to the Premier League.

"It's important to be settled," said the 28-year-old, in an interview with talkSPORT.

"To play your best football you need a home. You need to be valued and feel part of something and I have certainly found that here.

"The loan came with an obligation to buy if we got up and when we achieved that it was really straightforward on what was going to happen so delighted to be here. Signed a three-year deal and it's hopefully going to be another big year for the club when we can achieve something even more special."

"It's going well, working really hard, worked hard throughout the summer," he said. "I am back training with the team so really pleased to be back on the grass and now it's just a case of building up that match fitness, getting some minutes in the friendlies, ready to go for the big kick-off.

"You get so many ups and downs in your career, but the up of winning the league, getting promoted, we had done a lot of the hard work, they are the moments you want to savour and enjoy with the team, they're the moments you remember no doubt when you look back on your career.

"I was unfortunate to miss out on a couple of those moments but I made sure I remained part of it and I stayed around the group and just delighted for myself and for everyone involved with the football club. It was quite a remarkable feat we achieved last year."
