Carvalhal explained how Fletcher was his number one choice for reinforcements in the final third, saying:
“Steven was our first choice and we are very happy that he has joined us.
“He is a player that we know very, very well and someone who can link the midfield with the attack and can understand very easily how we play.
The head coach added: “He is a technical player and I think our fans will like him very quickly. The challenge will be for Steven to produce the best season of his career, like many of our players did last season and this time hopefully go one better.
“It is important that he knows English football. He knows the competition and he already knows some of his new colleagues. This kind of experience is important to us.
“We also expect a lot of assists because this is the kind of experience he has shown in the past.
“Steven has scored goals in the Premier League and I have no doubt he will score goals in the Championship.”
