Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Northern Ireland international goalkeeper Lee Camp has joined Premier League Norwich City on a free transfer after being released by Nottingham Forest.

Camp was told he had no future at Forest following the appointment of Alex McLeish as manager and was released earlier this month. He was set to join Championship side Ipswich Town, but jumped at the chance of a move to rivals Norwich City after talks with boss Chris Hughton.

The 28-year-old, who had a spell on loan at Norwich in 2006 when he played three times for the Canaries, has signed a six-month deal through to the end of the season and he will provide competition for Mark Bunn, who has been left as the number one with John Ruddy ruled out until April through injury.

“I’m delighted,” Camp told Norwich’s official website. “It all came around pretty quickly and it turned out to be a pretty straightforward decision in the end. I’m really pleased to be here. It’s a six-month deal which I think suits both parties pretty well. I think it would add a little bit of competition and hopefully I can add to the experience and competition already here.”

Hughton added: “Lee will give us some really valuable experience alongside Mark Bunn with goalkeeper John Ruddy still out injured for a while. He’s a proven goalkeeper and he’s at a good age. He of course knows Norwich well having had a loan spell here a few years ago and the deal until the end of the season suits all parties.”
