Norwich City have confirmed the signing of Palermo striker Kyle Lafferty on a three-year deal.

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

The deal will be completed on July 1, subject to paperwork – with the former Burnley, Rangers and Sion forward signing on until the summer of 2017, with the option of a fourth year.

“Norwich is a team that wants to get promoted back to the Premier League at the first opportunity, so I’m excited to come here and start playing football for a team like this,” said Lafferty.

“I’ve played in the Championship before and I’ve played against Norwich, and things I noticed about the club were the fans and the football they played.

“Speaking to the gaffer, everything he said and everything he wants me to do, it’s good to have someone like that believing in me. I can’t wait to get started.”

The 26-year-old has 37 caps for Northern Ireland and spent last season with Italian Serie B champions Palermo, where he scored 11 goals in 34 appearances on their way to promotion.

Lafferty’s arrival is City’s second this summer, after Lewis Grabban made a £3m-plus move from Bournemouth earlier this month. That’s two strikers – joining City’s current contracted crop of four.

Former Celtic striker Gary Hooper has already been linked with a move back to the Premier League via a number of clubs – with City boss Neil Adams stipulating City need Hooper to stay. And youngster Jamar Loza signed a new two-year deal on Monday at Carrow Road, off the back of his top-flight and international bows.

Dutch record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel had to shoulder a lot of responsibility for City’s shot-shy

relegation campaign last term, and his City future remains uncertain.

And while Luciano Becchio got limited chances under Chris Hughton – they were even harder to come by under his successor during Adams’ five-game tenure.

The City boss has reiterated his aim to get Norwich scoring goals again – as well as the fact Norwich do not need to sell a single player this summer, despite relegation.

However, the arrival of 6ft 4in Lafferty would appear to make striker departures inevitable.

  • Excellent signing ! Every successful City team I've ever seen has featured a big solid no-nonsense frontman: Iwan, Holty, Flecky, MacDougall. We broke with tradition last season + stuck a cheese eating, toe-stubbing Dutch male model upfront + we got relegated. Lafferty was the type of player we were asking City to sign for the whole of last year. Someone who'll put himself around a lot in the box, torment defenders + create his own chances. "Oh help, it's rocket science our brains can't cope"....answered the Norwich City board.

  • Brew, you are obviously grabban a laff, as you probably know the Eritrean parsnip needs to undergo a malolactic fermentation which involves the addition of large quantities of honey, resulting in a product akin to Afari Meade. However with a near 25% alcohol content the 2014 post-Ramadan vintage should be available soon in 5 Litre jerricans and will almost guarantee a Play Off place if not automatic promotion !

  • I would have, Lobbo, if I knew how to do one of those squiggly bits on the bottom of a soup can! Perhaps I should ask Cedilla Black? I know I could delve into the Arthur ASCII codes but I can`t be bothered! ;-) Yes, I am optimistic that Norwich could\should do quite well in The Championship, though there are quite a few clubs who would expect similar. It`s not going to be a pushover. I am particularly pleased that Old Three Lungs is there to help Neil. I think fitness and attitude were problems last season - Gary Holt knows all about both of those qualities! I am still puzzled by the promises of a Technical Director and a Recruitment Supremo have gone quiet. After all, we`ve recruited two players already. Or is Ewan Chester-Drawers still rummaging about on our behalf. I bet Mattias knows but he`s too busy to contribute when he`s not at work. ;-) Perhaps Machianalli et al have decided that Uncle Joe can cover all the requirements? If so, perhaps they`ll tell the fans one day. On our favourite topic, Little Benno will have avoided the dispiriting experience of toiling beneath the Triple Yoke last season, and could be as good & fresh as a new signing. OTBC.

  • Hi, Dubya. I am most disappointed that you did not have the foresight to put into production a Championship Strength Pollyanna Potion. There`s your problem; you are so supremely optimistic that you couldn`t even contemplate relegation. Surely you have time, before the season starts, to produce something suitable? Can`t you blend off some of the existing Premier-Quality stock with an equal portion of Eritrean Grand Cru Hagar Nish Plateau Pinot Grigio-Mountain Parsnip Special Reserve? (Available from good garage forecourts Worldwide). I`ll leave that potion notion with you. Meanwhile, Lobbo has emerged from the early summer, spent single-handedly reconfiguring Yorkshire`s topography, even more optimistic than Dubya himself. Must be the Timothy Taylor`s Triple Ty ke Tipple from Tadcaster. (OK, I know it`s Keighley, Gimme a break) ;-)

  • Afternoon Brew, as I mentioned on an earlier thread, this has got to be Elliott Bennett's big season. NC stuck with him so it's time to give some pay back. Although I don't think he's got what it takes to make it in the Premier league, the Championship is ready made for him. Got to be right wing, skin a few defenders and get good crosses in for the strikers. We still don't really know who's leaving but some will be going for sure. NA seems to know where he is going though.I think we'll go straight back up. Odds of 10 - 1 being offered. OTBC.

As it happens I may just have found the new elixir here in the form of Ethiopian wine !! So I raise to you a glass of Rift Valley Cuvee Prestige Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot - (Google it, I am not making this up) - not a bad drop of stuff it is, if I may say so......

  • G`day again, Adelaide! You are so sharp and youthful in your demeanour, that I forget you are an even older g!t than I. I am only 66, but I do remember references to the `Chicken Run`. My parents had an American serviceman billeted in their hovel. About 55 years ago I found, at the back of the sideboard, a tin of American coffee. I`d no experience of coffee beyond that bottled Camp syrup stuff, with a now non-PC picture of a British officer being waited upon by a sub-continental flunkey. So I found the tin-opener, opened the tin and discovered.... Coffee Beans!! I hope that was the only thing the GI donated to our household. I often ponder on how dissimilar my brother and I are..... These days, it`s Prisoner of War Road. Hot `n` Cold running gore guaranteed at weekends.

  • Hii, Lobbo! Where do you thiink young Elliiiott Bennett fiits iinto the equatiion, then? I believe he might make a good right back, though he could be the perfect solution to our winger siituation now that `Lefty` Snodgrass has, well, left. No surpriises there. Seriously, I agree with you. When Lambo & Co got us into the Prem, there were no "Trophy Purchases". Steve Morison (he DID get 9 Prem goals in that season). The Bennetts. Howson. Pilks. Gorbalschev persevered with the marvellous Grant Holt, and was rewarded with 15 Prem goals, but had less success with Simeon & Beccles Boy. Players like Russell Martin, Wesley and John Ruddy stepped up to the plate. 47 points from a season in which we scored 52 goals and conceded 66. The price for Hughton`s `achievement`- over 2 seasons - of improving the "goals against" tally by a mighty 4 down to a mere 62 was to strangle the "goals for" to 28. Almost halved!! On paper, he had a much, much better squad than Lambo`s. But he didn`t have a proper team. And the team didn`t have a proper manager. I hope, and have some optimism, that Adams\Gary Holt\Robson can get performances out of what is a decent squad (subject to departures\recruitments). I wonder what Uncle Joe will be up to? Btw; Dubya Canary has promised to send me several cases of his Championship Strength Pollyanna Potion before kick-off day. He`s a good chap ;-)

  • More strikers = more goals hmmm : On a more serious note those wondering about us having to many strikers remember that in the Chump we'll be playing a full fixture list so we will need more. In the promotion season we used Holt, Simeon, and Chrisy Martin only to find ourselves on the edge if having a fit starter at times. That was with one up front. Still 6 is a lot, unless we're going to be playing 433 (now I'm dreaming!)

  • G`Day, OzCan. Something tells me you`re not impressed. As others have said, recruitment seems to be occurring without the need for a Director of Recruitment. Has the Management Organisation chart been torn up? Was it ever created? Is Uncle Joe ipso facto Director of Football and doing it all himself? Or is Macchianalli pulling all the strings? Or even the Manager.... As long as Adams, Robson & Ol` 3-Lungs can get good performances and results, we should worry already. Hughton`s `consolidation` year turned out to be a car crash, in retrospect.

Like Dubya Canary said, it must`ve been a spectacular female to distract Kyle from Nicola. Former Miss Scotland; absolutely gorgeous. Six foot six in stilettos. If Laffs was a Rangers player at the time of wdding her, he was a brave man, as the former Ms. Mimnagh is of St. Delia`s persuasion. Of course, that would be an ecumenical matter. Where`s Timbo?

  • So the board said 'we don't need to sell anyone'. Translation = We need to sell our season ticket allotment and there's a new strip to sell. Give the fans hope so we can bleed every penny out of them. We can then sell high waged players to balance the books. Just as the players would have taken a wage hit. Have the boards had their salaries cut? Anyone know? Grabban = RVW replacement Lafferty = Couldn't get Rhodes or McCormack. Hooper replacement. The board said 'we don't need to sell anyone' but that doesn't mean we won't, right? If we sell it will be on our terms they said. So we'll get players in before we release our better players. Then when it's reported we're selling players for 8mil it won push up prices on our own transfer targets.

I can only think the purse strings have well and truly been tightened. Expect to see RVW, Hooper and Bechio leave. Given our management team have little experience in a league which is difficult to get out of. We will struggle next season. Even QPR kept most of their squad and only just managed it.

  • As per a few comments I hope he will be a good target man for the wingers that is providing NA gets the wingers crossing and not trying top shoot all the time. Canarywest, yes remember Robert Rosario, though one of his downsides was that whilst being target man he was not laying the ball off to smaller scorers like Fleck and Allen. I still have concerns over the back four as we certainly had a fall off in performance there last season compared to the previous one. OTBC

  • Another non-goal scoring striker...just what we need. No, more seriously, seriously he does get a few and seems a Robert Rosario type striker (anyone remember him). He has obviously been bought in for his height. Snodrass is going, which leaves us with only fast wingers who can actually cross the ball, so its pretty obvious how the new management team want us to play next season. Exciting times ahead I hope. Now just get rid of Bassong and a sign a decent centre half instead and we will be good to go.

  • Sounding like a broken record I know, but it doesn't matter about the quality or quantity of strikers if they don't get the ball. Hopefully NA's playing philosophy will ensure that it happens this season, after ALL our strikers were isolated and damaged under Calderwood and Hughton. I felt sorry for RVW and GH, I really did, but with Grabban and Lafferty I can't see them both staying.

  • If you were trying to sell your house knowing it had problems and suddenly someone showed interest, would you go round saying "well the roof leaks, it was built on an indian burial ground and is near a volcano" before the deal was done. This is the key reason I dont believe the sub-par news tibbets going round. While im sure there may be some substance to the stories (there usually is) its odd the chairman would say this. Unless maybe they were hoping to keep him. Hopefully the EDP and other media outlets focus on the player and what he can bring to the table instead of leaving fans talking about silly chinese whispers and expecting 20 + goals a season.

  • All im going to say in regards to the Palermo chairman claims is no1: they are in Italian and likely translated really badly. No2: why oh why oh why would you bad mouth a player you are trying to sell before its official? No3: The quotes only appeared in non main stream news sites, fan sites so to speak run by non-professional reporters\posters (atleast in the ones I checked). While im not saying hes a saint (due to reports from his time at Rangers & Burnley), im not going to destroy him before hes even played a game for us. Im sure the fans will do that on their own after he fails to score 20 + goals. If he can come in, fill the massive void up top thats crying out for some height and help bring others into play, in turn creating goals for others, ill be thrilled! Add chipping in with a few goals and ill be over the moon! In terms of players leaving it'll be interesting to see who does leave. Im assuming Becchio for certain. I'd been convinced RVW would leave on loan elsewhere but his tweet on social media was good to hear! If the reports of Hooper and Adams falling out last season are true I wouldnt be surprised to see him end up at QPR. Wait and see :) OTBC

  • Just googled Lafferty to find out a bit more about him, goal record etc. Top search result is about Palermo saying he is "unmanageable" and disappears for a week at a time chasing women. Hopefully just Palermo stirring the pot as they knew he was leaving!

  • Grabban, RvW, Hooper, Loza and Becchio and now Lafferty - no wonder 1p5wich want to move the fixture - we only scored five there last time !
