Norwich City have agreed terms for Palermo and Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty.
The 26-year-old is Norwich’s second signing of the summer, following fellow striker Lewis Grabban’s arrival from Bournemouth.
Lafferty scored 11 goals in 34 games as Palmero returned to Serie A – the top flight of Italian football – at the first time of asking, and has a agreed a three-year deal with the Norfolk-based club with an option of an extra year. He will join on July 1 for an undisclosed fee subject to the relevant paper work being completed.
This is Lafferty’s second experience in the Championship, following a spell with recently-promoted Premier League side Burnley where he made 89 appearances.
Lafferty said the following about his move on the official Canaries website: “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.”
