Carey spent seven years in Norwich’s academy before joining Kings Lynn via a stint with Wroxham.

He was released by the Canaries at the age of 16 and had unsuccessful trials with Cambridge United and Oxford United.

The versatile midfielder came to the attention of Kings Lynn after being coached by ex-Norwich star Ryan Jarvis.

Jarvis played a key role in the Linnets’ rise to the fifth tier.

Both Swansea City and Bournemouth are hoping to earn promotion back to the Premier League this season.
