Canaries bring in Andreu as Lafferty departs

NORWICH City completed the signing of Hamilton Academical attacker Tony Andreu on the final day of the January transfer window, subject to FIFA approval.

The 26-year-old moved to Carrow Road on a three-and-a-half-year deal to reunite with former manager Alex Neil after an 18-month spell at New Douglas Park.

During his time at the Accies, the Frenchman netted 25 goals in 58 league matches, including a dozen Scottish Premier League strikes this term.

Meanwhile, striker Kyle Lafferty left the Club on deadline day to join Turkish side Çaykur Rizespor on loan until the end of the season.

Signing from Palermo last summer, the Northern Irish international has made 20 appearances for City in all competitions to date, scoring once.

Another senior player to leave the Canaries was defender Jos Hooiveld, who had his loan from Southampton terminated in the last week of January.

That allowed the Dutchman to complete a similar temporary switch to Sky Bet Championship strugglers Millwall, with the 31-year-old set to remain at the New Den until the end of the season.

Three City youngsters also made short-term moves during the window, with Cameron McGeehan, Jacob Murphy and Jamar Loza penning youth loans with Cambridge United, Scunthorpe United and Yeovil Town respectively.

Finally, Carlton Morris extended his stay with York City into February after suitably impressing while at Bootham Crescent.
