NORWICH City are pleased to confirm the signing of Cameron Jerome from Stoke City for an undisclosed fee.

The forward, who made 29 appearances in the Premier League last season, moves to Carrow Road on a three-year deal.

“It’s a massive club and from my point of view, where I am in my career, I just need to be playing regularly and Norwich have made me feel very welcome,” said Jerome.

“Once I spoke with the manager and a few other people here, it was a no-brainer. The ambition of the club matches my ambition as a player and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into training and hopefully being involved at the weekend.”

Neil Adams added: “Cameron brings power and pace to our attacking options.

“He’s someone I’ve been looking at for a long while and I’m delighted he became available to us. He gives us that brute strength as well as power, but he’s got much more than that too.

“He works really hard for the team and he gives us that strength in depth that we’ll need over a tough season.”

Jerome established himself with successful spells at Cardiff City and Birmingham City, earning him a move to Stoke on a four-year contract in August 2011.

He scored on his debut for the Potters in a 1-1 draw with Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League that September, and went on to net 12 goals in 67 appearances in all competitions while with the club.

The 28-year-old signed for Crystal Palace on a season-long loan in September last year and featured heavily as they recorded a high league finish of 11th place in the top flight.
