James Vaughan admits it was a wrench to leave Everton but says he's excited about the next chapter of his career.

Vaughan has been at Everton since he was six years old but has now agreed a three-year deal with Premier League newcomers Norwich City.

The Blues remain important to Vaughan but he is now focussing on impressing for his new club.

"I'm really looking forward to it," said the 22-year-old. "I'm really happy to get it done so early in the summer. I'm already looking forward to getting back into training.

"That's what I wanted all along, to get it done and make sure I got a full pre-season. I can look forward to the season ahead now.

"I was very impressed with Norwich last season and obviously getting promoted two seasons in a row isn't easy and a lot of credit has to go to the team for doing that."

Vaughan was on loan in the Championship last season but is delighted to be handed the opportunity to play at the top level for a progressive outfit who have enjoyed back-to-back promotions.

"I went out to Palace last year to play some games and do the best that I could for Palace. I really enjoyed my time there," he continued.

"Of course it was hard to leave Everton, I've been there since I was six and have always been there but now it was time for me to move on and try and get some games elsewhere and I'm pleased that I've signed for Norwich.

"The Club is going in the right direction and hopefully I can join and keep that going in the Premier League."
