Argentine completes Carrow Road move.
Norwich City announced that they had agreed to sign Argentine forward Luciano Becchio from second-tier Leeds United in a part-exchange deal that will see Wales international striker Steve Morison move in the opposite direction.

The move, subject to the completion of the relevant paperwork, will see Becchio arrive at Carrow Road on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
“I cannot wait to play my first game for Norwich,” he told the club website.
“I am really happy about having the chance to play in the Premier League, it is brilliant for me personally and for my career.”
The 29 year old former Merida forward has been a stunning success at Elland Road, scoring 86 goals in 221 appearances for Leeds United, becoming something of a cult hero at the club.
Steve Morison may well hope that a move to the Championship side can help re-ignite a career that appeared to be stagnating, the former Millwall man having made just four Premier League starts thus far this season.
Chris Hughton will hope that new injection of firepower will help get his Canaries season back on track after a series of poor results effectively canceled out all the good work Norwich City had put into the opening months of the season.
Norwich City have lost five of their last seven Premier League matches, drawing the other two.
