Norwich City have made their fourth signing of the summer, picking up goalkeeper Archie Mair from Aberdeen on a long term contract for an undisclosed fee. So far this summer Norwich have looked to add players to their squad following promotion, with Patrick Roberts, Daniel Adshead and Josip Drmic all joining The Canaries.
The 18 year old was yet to make a breakthrough into the Aberdeen senior team and has now made the switch to the Premier League. Here’s what Mair has had to say about his transfer:
“Delighted to have joined Norwich City, thank you to everyone at Aberdeen FC and Aberdeen FC Youth Academy for my 10 years there, can’t wait to get started.”
Mair joined Aberdeen’s youth system in 2010 and has since been playing for their youth teams. Last season Mair made 9 appearances for the reserve team, whilst also playing in the Club Academy Scotland League for the U-18’s.
Internationally, Mair has represented Scotland at various youth levels from U17’s through to U-19’s, making 9 appearances and keeping 3 clean sheets.
Fantasy Football Potential
Similarly to Adshead, Mair will join Norwich’s U-23 side at the start of the season and therefore it will therefore be unlikely that the shot stopper will make an appearance in the Premier League in the upcoming season with Tim Krul and Michael McGovern ahead of him. Mair will most likely allow the current U-23’s goalkeeper, Aston Oxborough, out on loan.
