Sitti is 19-years-old and joins the Canaries on a contract that runs until 2024 but he will return to FC Sochaux on-loan for the rest of the 2019/20 season to gain more first team experience.
Speaking exclusively to Canaries.co.uk Melvin said “I chose Norwich because I love the way they play. I’m a big fan of the stadium as well. I have taken time to talk to my family and friends and I think it’s the best choice for me to come here.
“In football, it’s always difficult to change. But that’s life and this choice is a positive one. I think I’m going to be very happy here.
“I’m going back to Sochaux to get more experience. I hope to play more games and then I hope I can come back next season and be ready to help the team.
“I can’t wait to be here next summer. Before that, I have to achieve my goals in Sochaux by playing more games. But when I come back, I will be ready.“
Welcome to Norwich, Melvin.
