Norwich City sign US youth international Sebastian Soto
Another American player arrives in England with Norwich City announcing the signing of USA youth international striker Sebastian Soto until 2023.
On Tuesday Norwich City announced the signing of Sebastian Soto until the summer of 2023. The 20-year-old’s contract with German 2. Bundesliga side Hannover expired at the end of the current season but he will now continue his career in the second division of England.
Sebastian Soto started his career with San Diego Surf in his home town state of California before moving to Real Salt Lake in 2016 and two years later he joined Hannover where he played for two seasons. The striker was also a key figure on the United States 2019 U-20 World Cup team thanks to the four goals he scored as they made it to the quarter-finals.
“I am very proud to be here and very excited to join this club,” said Soto after signing his contract with Norwich City. “I am a young player and I am happy that the coach believes in me. I am a striker that loves to score goals and I want to leave a mark in this team.”
Soto can't wait to play in front of the fans
Soto is ready to make his debut in front of a sell-out crowd at the Carrow Road when the coronavirus pandemic is over, “I want to play in front of these great fans. It will be a dream come true when that happens.”
Soto's time at Hannover, which began in 2018, did not pan out well. He made two appearances off the bench and played just 16 minutes in the 2. Bundesliga this past season. He did however score 17 goals for Hannover's U-19s in 2018-2019, and Norwich will hope to tap into that potential as they attempt to return to the Premier League.
