Cureton completes Norwich switch

Norwich have signed Colchester striker Jamie Cureton for an undisclosed fee.

Cureton, the leading scorer in the Championship last season, requested a move earlier this month, and the U's made it clear they do not want to sell.

The 31-year-old began his career at Norwich, making 29 league appearances before spells with Bristol Rovers, Reading, QPR, Swindon and Colchester.

Cureton only moved to Layer Road on a permanent basis last summer, after a successful loan spell.

He scored 23 goals in 44 league appearances, but cited a perceived lack of ambition when he handed in his transfer request.

Cureton told Norwich's website: "I scored a lot of goals at youth and reserve level here and managed to get a few goals for the first team.

"I will be 32 in August but I still have plenty in the locker. I'm probably playing the best I have ever played and I'm raring to go."

Hull chairman Paul Duffen recently revealed that Cureton was a target for Tigers boss Phil Brown.
