Official: Van Wolfswinkel signs for Betis

Norwich City striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel has joined La Liga side Real Betis on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old forward, who arrived in East Anglia from Sporting Lisbon for a club-record fee of £8.5m, had his registration confirmed moments following the Spanish transfer window closing.

Despite an impressive strike rate of 45 goals in 88 games during his time in Portugal, the two-capped Dutch international has struggled for form since his move to England.

After just one goal in 25 league appearances for City in 2013-14, he spent last season on loan at St. Etienne in Ligue Un, scoring five goals in 24 games.
