Lisbie joins Norwich in loan move
Kevin Lisbie
Norwich have signed Charlton striker Kevin Lisbie on a month's loan.

The 26-year-old Jamaica international goes straight into the squad for Saturday's game with fellow early strugglers Plymouth at Carrow Road.

He will bolster a Canaries attack which is lacking the injured Leon McKenzie and the suspended Darren Huckerby.

Hackney-born Lisbie has scored 19 goals in 67 league and cup starts for the Addicks, while making a further 93 appearances as a substitute.

Lisbie, who scored a hat-trick in the victory over Liverpool at The Valley two years ago, started last season as a regular member of the Addicks team after spending the summer recuperating from a back problem, only for him to be hindered by hamstring injury in December.

At the end of the campaign, the 26-year-old had surgery to remove a benign tumour in his nose, and following a period of recuperation, has since been working his way back to full match fitness.

Charlton manager Alan Curbishley hopes the temporary move to Norfolk will allow the striker the chance to sharpen up his game.

"We've allowed him to go out on loan because he needs to play some first-team football," said Curbishley on the club`s official website,

"Kevin has had a disruptive time with injuries in recent times, and it will do him a world of good to get a month of first-team football. Hopefully he will come back to us nice and sharp."
