Norwich have taken Aston Villa striker Peter Crouch on loan for three months.
Crouch joined Villa for £5m
The Canaries have been weakened up front with the departure of David Nielsen to Aalborg and an injury to Zema Abbey.
The 22-year-old has struggled for a first-team place since his £5m move from Portsmouth, and has only had one substitute outing since David O'Leary took over at Villa.
Crouch, who was also wanted by Ipswich, is expected to make his City debut on
September 13 against Burnley.
