Canaries sign Crouch

Crouch joined Villa for 5m
Norwich have taken Aston Villa striker Peter Crouch on loan for three months.

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.
