Striker Cameron Jerome has become Norwich City’s second signing of the day, after a transfer for an undisclosed fee was confirmed by the Canaries.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The 28-year-old striker had been linked with a move from Stoke City earlier this week after being told he was surplus to requirements at the Britannia Stadium, having spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace.

The former England Under-21 striker has signed a three-year contract in a deal thought to be worth around £1.5million.

“Cameron brings power and pace to our attacking options,” City boss Neil Adams told his club’s official website.

“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.”

The Daily Record reported on Monday that Celtic had agreed a £2m deal with Stoke and offered personal terms to the tall forward but were looking at other options in the expectation that Jerome was heading for Norfolk.

Jerome added: “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.

“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.”

Jerome first came to the fore with Cardiff City, scoring 27 goals in 79 games to earn a £3m move to Birmingham City, who he then helped to earn promotion to the Premier League.

After 41 goals in 201 appearances for the Blues, Jerome was sold to Stoke for £4m in the summer of 2011 following Birmingham being relegated to the Championship.

He then managed 12 goals in 67 matches for Stoke, before being allowed to join Palace on loan at the start of last season, scoring just twice in 29 games.

Jerome’s signing continues a breathless day of transfer news emerging from Carrow Road, following hot on the heels of last night’s 3-1 home win against Blackburn Rovers.

Firstly it was announced that defender Michael Turner had signed a new deal which commits him to the club until the summer of 2016.

The former Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar was confirmed as having signed on a free transfer, with the Spanish defender joining on a one-year deal with an option for a further 12 months.

Shortly afterwards the club record £10m sale of Leroy Fer to Queens Park Rangers was announced, before Jerome’s signing was announced, becoming Neil Adams’ fifth permanent signing of the summer.

  • Don't know why so many posters are negative about these two signings, so they may be getting towards the end of their careers but they can both still offer something to NCFC. Just becasue they have been released doesnt mean they are not good but probably dont fit in with the managers plans (sound familiar? CH's signings etc). I also believe that this good business and agree with Lord Besty that the Club are probably trying to hang on to as much parachute and transfer money as possible in the hope we get promoted back to the PL. So what if we bounce up and down, the money we can earn will ensure we stay afloat. If we had the money of Man City or Chelski, NCFC wouldn't be the club we love so much. Another win (trouncing) saturday please Neil. OTBC.

It's not only Archie that thrive on such mischievousness. A few years back I was presenting a documentary style community radio programme looking at the history of various record labels each week on a Thursday evening. Lo and behold, Radio Partridge not only started a similar programme, but each Sunday they would feature the same label as I had a few days earlier, doubtless recording my efforts but using all my research. Soon stopped that one by featuring obscure minor UK & USA labels and releases that their audience would not appreciate!

Sometimes I am certain that Archie sits on the edge of a black hole somewhere, that or the selection criteria for publishing is decided blindfold. But then, mystically my words (or at least very smilar) oft appear in Archie publications or online equivalents tagged with some sad hacks name. Now why would this be?

  • Couple of very astute moves by NA. I think Cuellar is an outstanding signing - exactly what we need for this division. Jerome has never been prolific, his career average is 1 goal every 5 games (if you exclude his loan spell at palace (2 in 29). That said, Cameron will re-establish a strong physical presence up front - that annoying nuisance factor we lost when Holty left. By jingo I think we might have a big enough squad to mount a serious promotion challenge and field strong sides in both cup competitions.

Funnily enough MB, and hope this does not disappoint you, I was rejected twice last week for reason of "offensive" I was trying to make a point about clubs being "hoares" in their pursuit of glory but used the variation of the word beginning with "w". Was slow to latch on then realised. Could happen to you Richard G in all innocence. As a tester try doing a post about the team that plays at Highbury (or wherever they play now).

  • To be honest, I'd rather be a bouncer. It did the likes of West Bromwich and Wolves good for many years. We've seen before it's too easy to get stuck in this league, and without ambition for promotion it becomes mid table or even survival. Don't want to see that again. In this league, we do have something to aim for, but that's promotion. If that as is likely leads to relegation again in a few years, so be it. It has happened to bigger clubs than us, it will happen to at least half the club's up there at some point in the next 10 or so years. Shouldn'twe be aiming to be a Southampton, not an Ipswich?

  • Wise and sensible posting Trevor Keith. I was initially dubious about Neil Adams's appointment but have to say he is learning fast and am delighted with his attitude and playing philosophy. We have seen two excellent performances at Carrow Road in the past week, which gives me considerable grounds for optimism. The squad looks strong and far more balanced with some good depth. Although I was disappointed to see Garrido go off injured on Tuesday, Adams got it spot on with the way he rearranged the defence. I find myself agreeing in part with those who wonder about being in the Prem League. The advantages, of course, are the money, the global exposure it gives Norwich and the chance to see some of the world's best players. However the downsides are equally obvious - mainly the fact that to be honest clubs like Norwich can't now achieve anything other than, at best, midtable or simple survival. If, like Southampton, a smaller club does come good all that happens is the big ones come in and gobble up your best players. There is also the issue of ticket prices. At least in the Championship we have the ability to compete at a high level and having a strong squad in this tier we are going to get far more attractive, attacking, football win or lose. In some respects I think clubs like Burnley have it right: be strong enough to get promotion, take the cash for a season or two to keep solvent, but then be quite prepared to drop down again. So all in all, I am content to sit back and enjoy the football we are seeing this season - in fact happier than the dross which we got under Hughton.

LincsCan has today, and nothing LincsCan says is ever remotely offensive. That is a statistically sound statement. RG - beware of letting the Devil into your back yard. "Moan" is a heavily used word.

Our squad in now starting to look very good and NA has shown that he is no Brian Gunn, he is still learning in many respects, made a set up mistake at Wolves but soon found the solution to the problem. Lets all get behind the team whatever the result on Saturday as then we will only get better. OTBC.

  • I agree with Alan Clark - the board cannot be blamed for players leaving. None of the departures are a loss for us in the Championship. I do think that the deal for RVW is sensible but look at Remy and QPR - he scored well in the Prem last season but no sale completed yet so if RVW does well and we are promoted we may not have seen the last of him. I wish Fer well but pleased to see him leave although QPR is a bit of a poor destination if he is as good as some posters believe. I think he is lightweight and poor value for £10m.

  • Morgan`s_tight-pants; Mattias declared his displeasure a while back. I think something somebody posted made him feel the Boards were no longer his cup of tea. So, he decided to quit. I have made entreaties for him to return, and he has made one brief revisit. I fear it may have been the debate about Rob Butler`s brutish treatment of a particularly inarticulate Canary Caller that put him off, for it seems he is a `good mate` of the aforementioned yob Butler. Perhaps you can persuade M333 to return? Waclor; I once bought a cheap compilation cassette of Roy Orbison songs. One track listed was "Running Sacred". Dubai still responsible for the World slave trade and Ethiopian parsnip wine. Shameful. Tut.

Olsy n Garrido A few up n coming like Bennett n the twins...And if we keep hold of REDMOND then WOW! ....On top of that we have bought one last seasons top championship performers and I'm sure the others like Laff n this new guy were pursued by others before we got them even if they are only gonna be squad players...Like they said on talk sport after the Blackburn match,even with the departure of fer(they thought it was a done deal then), Norwich must have one of the strongest squads in this division... Just because we have a strong bank balance as well, doesn't mean we have to go and spend ten mill on a player just to prove we have ambition!! Look at Fulham!

  • Mr McNally has issued stats to prove we will be champions this season, i.e., after three games in the Chump last season Forest were top and all three of the teams eventually promoted were already in the top six. The team in sixth place went up as champions. This season, after three games, Forest are top and Norwich are sixth. The other two teams to come up with us have not been named but nobody probably cares because it can't be Ipswich who are outwith the statistical guidelines.

  • Squad is shaping up. Assuming there are no more high profile departures, I wouldn't want to be a defender in a team holding on to a narrow win or draw against us, looking over to the bench to see Grabban and Lafferty replaced with Jerome and Hooper! We've got the extra defender, have plenty of midfielders and a quality keeper. Redmond will only improve with him being only 20, Murphy too and the manager knows which youngers are likely to break through over the next season or two very well. A big ask but a couple more wins in August and they'll be well on their way.

In fact I think he's doing a good job of copying the best bit's of Lambert. Also, why pay millions when a free agent or whatever can do the same job. Very shrewd. Just because we have millions burning a hole in our pocket, you don't have to spend it all at once a la LiverpoolTorresCarroll.

As with some others, I wonder if money is being held back for January, just in case we need to splash out for the final push? Still worried though that if we sell more we might be struggling to get good value replacements before the window closes.

  • He's a player that fits the way Adams wants to play, attacking with pace and power. He can rotate with either Laffs or Grabban, which is what you need in the constant stream of games in this league. Even more so when you consider we are going to have two spectacular cup runs as well - we can dream. I'm disappointed to see Fer go, but actually I think today hasn't been a bad days business. Money in the bank, a want away player off the books, two experienced hands to boost the squad arriving, and a solid member of the squad signing up for a longer stay as well. Yep, quite happy.

Also I would tell all players that if we go up they get to stay and play in the prem as it must be counter motivational to realize that with success you will lose your job!

  • Look guys, you can't go and spend 8,10,12 million on a player because there isn't one that will come to a championship club, period. What we seem to be doing is offloading expensive wage sucking, premier football seeking mercenaries and replacing them with cheapish and free experienced players that can add numbers to our hungry squad. Now, when we hopefully go back up we will have 20-30 million extra to spend on better quality players that can maintain our prem status. I could be completely wrong of course but I'm trying to put a positive spin on this stuff. Peace.

  • Come on people! two convicing wins on the spin, we are scoring goals and things are looking good, give the Adams machine a chance, yes he is bringing in some championship players, but guess what! we are in the championship and are going to have a battle on our hands, we are down so we need to rebuild and start again, when we are back in the fancy league i'm sure he will buy the fancy players, get behind Adams and see the positives, OTBC

  • Well we are going to be a strong Chumpy side if nothing else. If we miss promotion this season we can soldier on at this level -just like good old 1p5wich have done for the last 12 season or so.... Then if we do get back into the promised land of Greed and Money we have to cast off large chunks of the squad that got us promoted, spend a fortune on 'big players' and hope we have paid enough to stay up !

  • The signing doesn't blow me away. I'm more interested in the midfield additions(if any), and a young, hungry centre back, not a 32 yr old has-been. If he was still any good would he have been released?

  • Well, I suppose we need an alternative\back-up to Laffs, who could get injured, if he isn`t already. This is definitely building a squad that can cope with the Championship. Not a long term thing... The real agenda could be Neil launching a whole new generation of home-grown players from the Academy. All for free! Kerrr-Ching!! Dubya; that nominal profit is peanuts compared with the lost riches of The Prem. Damage Limitation and Income Maximization by and for the Sacred Seven. Anagram of `Sacred` anyone?

  • If stoke do want to spent funny money on Redmond then I say take it, he needs to learn how to play smart and to cross the ball, We have a Muphy who would benefit well from game time and I think he would do just as well if not better than Nathan. We would need to buy though as with Pilks gone we are a touch light on wingers.

  • Coats on Redmond - 'We met Norwich's asking price, but the club didn't want to sell and I don't have any quarrel with Norwich for that.' - how did Stoke meet an asking price if he wasn't for sale ? Guess we have not heard the end of the transfer wheelings and dealings yet......... BTW is anyone keeping score on the fees, in and out ? That will be about £20M in and about £5M out = £15M in the coffers.....

  • I am sure that this guy will be a good signing for the Chump and gives some real competition. Starting to fall into shape, so let's hope no more departures, except maybe for Bassong and Becchio. Just hope that if Peter Cech moves on from Chelsea, as predicted, that Mourinho does not come back for John Ruddy, waving Abramovic's cheque book.

  • OK, there is certainly competition up front now. It is starting to look like a very competitive championship team.

  • Hmm, Stoke City chairman states they met the NCFC asking price for Nathan Redmond, but NCFC did not want to sell. Could this be a sweetener to smooth the main deal through?

  • Just heard that Snodgrass is out for 6 months with a discolated knee cap. Ouch! I can hear Steve Bruce groaning from here.

  • I am very happy with this, but come on if your not gonna play them then time to thin out the dead wood, Bassong and Becchio, it does not seem fair on them I doubt they are happy just taking the wage, the must want to go and play.

  • How many strikers at the club now? I'll reserve judgement on this signing for the time being. I hope some of the 20 mil received so far will be put back into the squad?
