Lewis Grabban secures Norwich City move

5 June 2014

Norwich City have signed Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban for an undisclosed fee.

Grabban, the Canaries' first new arrival since their relegation from the Barclays Premier League, has signed a three-year deal at Carrow Road with an option for a further year.

The 26-year-old arrives in Norfolk having scored 35 goals in 93 appearances during his two-year spell with Bournemouth.

He was the Cherries' leading scorer last season with 22 goals as the south coast club finished 10th in the Sky Bet Championship.

"I am delighted that Lewis has put pen to paper to become my first signing," Norwich boss Neil Adams told the club's official website.

"He will provide pace, intelligent movement and a high work ethic to the front line, and of course he showed in the Championship last season that he is capable of scoring a variety of different goals.

"Lewis possesses precisely the type of attitude, application and quality that I expect from my players, and I am really looking forward to integrating him into the squad."

On his move to Carrow Road, Grabban said: "It's good to start a new chapter, get going again with Norwich and hopefully get promotion.

"I've played here before and the atmosphere's been great, the fans are great. It's exciting to be a part of the club now and hopefully do well for them."

Grabban began his career as a trainee at Crystal Palace, before loan spells with Oldham and Motherwell led to a move to Millwall and later Brentford.

His next stop was Rotherham in 2011, where he scored 21 goals in 47 appearances, before heading to Bournemouth a year later.
