CHRIS LAKEY Jason Jarrett has ended an unhappy year as a Norwich City player when it was confirmed that he would be joining Championship rivals Preston North End.
Jason Jarrett ended an unhappy year as a Norwich City player today when it was confirmed that he would be joining Championship rivals Preston North End.
The 26-year-old, who signed for Norwich from Wigan last summer, had been on loan at Deepdale since March, with a view to a permanent deal going through on June 1 after his temporary contract expired.
City will receive a loan fee of £30,000, with a further undisclosed sum when the permanent deal goes through.
Jarrett started just six league games for Norwich in a season in which he also spent time at Plymouth Argyle on loan.
It was an unhappy period for a player who had helped Wigan earn promotion to the top flight but then opted to move to Norfolk because of the potential he saw at Carrow Road.
