Norwich City’s new signing Cameron Jerome is in no doubt he made the right choice to join the Canaries’ Championship crusade.

Jerome trained with his team mates for the first time on Thursday ahead of a potential debut in this weekend’s East Anglian derby at Ipswich.

The powerful striker signed a three-year deal after rejecting interest from elsewhere after Stoke made it clear his days in the Potteries were numbered.

“I’m excited to get going,” he told the club’s official site. “I’ve met the boys now and I just want to play some football. Stoke made it clear I was no longer required and part of the plans so from there on I had to look at my options and Norwich was one of those. It felt really comfortable, it felt right and after speaking to the manager what he said about where he wanted to take the club and the ambitions he had appealed to me.”

City chief Neil Adams believes Jerome’s versatility is a major plus.

“With Cameron again he gives us that something different, he gives us power and pace leading the line,” he said. “He is someone who can be a real handful to defenders when he is at it. I think he can play a typical number nine or a withdrawn striker or even that wider striker. He has played those roles in his career. We hope for lots of goals from him and I know he is capable, but it is what he provides to the team.”

  • I will need some induction to be tuned into that circuit, Igno. I think I`ll have to throw myself off Wheatstone`s Bridge.

  • Ohm my lord Brewer, I just knew you would not have sufficient resistance and would charge in with a battery of ripostes. Hopefully, the potential differential will short circuit a number of tractors demain après midi.

  • Why all the strikers, why is Norwich City not using Beccihio seems such a waste of talent, if he's not going to be used let him go.

  • I don`t think I have the capacitance for any more static, Igno. That was a condensed version of original post. Time for an exiting excit. I wonder what ecspats like Despot Dubya think?

  • Depends how he's used Dobro. I don't think he's been brought in to necessarily score goals - more as someone who can give defences a hard time and create space and opportunities for others in and around the box.

  • Strange transfer for me. As other's have posted , we seem to have strikers galore. He has never impressed me, whoever he's played for and whatever level. Can't see where he fits in at all. Three years sitting on the bench...it's a strange game these days.

  • Or perhaps BOF really did mean ex static, after all Mr. B we all know how very uncomfortable "current" static can be! Here's hoping for an electrifying performance on the morrow,

  • I was at the Palace game on new year's day at Selhurst Park and I was glad he was playing for them on that day. Lots of running around but couldn't hit a barn door. The jury is definitely still out on this one!

  • An Orwellian scene sketched by cutty & Bogaz. The Spanish villas bought with police overtime; Halcyon days of the Grantham Ogress. I worked in Manchester when the miners, still disgruntled at their position in the queue for the trough after strikes in `72, took advantage of the oil crisis to do more of the same in the winter of `73\4. The three day week ensued and Ted Heath was mortally wounded. Eventually, the miners` Nemesis, The Blessed Margaret returned to wreak awful vengeance. A whole industry laid to waste, and communities wih it. It makes that Despot Dubya look benign by comparison... The upside is, those nice policemen got rich and boosted the Spanish Villa market. I hope CJ is hungry enough to want to improve his position in the food chain - but don`t go on strike for it, Cameron. Just play good football! Bring on Foggo - that`s an easy mistake to make. You probably found that stray `X` while hoping for an exiting match ;-)

  • Agree with SStar, from the interview he seems to be focused in returning to the PL this season and it was a well balanced interview. This is going to be a long hard season and we need experience in depth and I reckon he will give that. With his arrival I do not think it hastens Hooper's departure, unless Hooper feels under more pressure now to perform. Though if Lennon gets the Palace job he may come looking for Hooper. I agree with BOF, Saturday not the time to change winning team but be nice to have Jerome on the bench. OTBC

  • Pleased to welcome him to the club and the area , and I will be truly exstatic if and when he breaks his recent form and scores some goals . Not sure that saturday is a good time to be making his debut though , that could go horribly wrong . play the proven winning team and bring him on for a bit if and when the game is won , or better still hold him back to tuesday night when it wont matter .

  • "Stoke made it clear I was no longer required "..defo a touch of bitterness there, which is great for us ! Cameron is exactly the type of player we should be looking to attract for this league, Premier class but also big + strong enough for the division we're in. I know he'll do well + we've got the money to pay him a decent wage. I really believe if we'd had him, Grabber + Laffs last season (plus NA in charge) instead of the Dutch toe-stubber + the Country Vicar, we'd have survived. Never mind. Start again from square one. We do still need to strengthen our defence, but apart from that we're sorted.

  • Nice comment Cutty! I lived in Selby in those days and saw it every day. Most cops bought Spanish villas with their overtime! As for City what a choice NA has now. Still hope he plays Josh instead of Redmond. Far more accurate

  • We all saw what Holty done in the Championship .......... Ashton could have been Englands number 9 for years to come .......... Iwan proved to be a legend .......... get anywhere near what they achieved for NCFC and we've got ourselves a bargain OTBC ! BRING IT ON !

  • We'll soon have more strikers than Scargill. I lived in Yorkshire in those day, talk about crowd violence, Saw some of it up close, the police were worse than the miners. Still, welcome Jerome you'll do for me.

  • I have never been convinced by him at Premiership level, but he sounds hungry and could be just what we need for the championship. Also adds even more variety up front, Grabban, Lafferty, Wes, Jerome, Hooper (if he stays)... all different types of attacking player.... not to mention Loza, Bennett, the Murphys and Redmond... and possibly never to be seen again Becchio.... at least we should have a plan B this season... and a plan C
