After months of interest, Norwich City have finally secured the signing of Scottish striker Steven Naismith.
The former Everton midfielder signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Canaries, becoming manager Alex Neil's fifth signing of the January transfer window - and whilst they were all made to boost the club's survival bid, the arrival of Naismith could prove most pivotal.
At the age of 29, the Scotland international adds plenty of experience and versatility to Neil's side.

His attacking instincts are credible, but it's perhaps his willingness to combine them with a solid defensive work-rate that has earned him praise and something that will be vital to a newly-promoted side looking to avoid relegation.
Naismith will also add goals at Carrow Road. Norwich have struggled to find the net with Cameron Jerome and Dieumerci Mbokani, but with the Scotsman amongst their ranks, the burden of goals and assists would be eased.
Neil told Sky Sports, "He's a fighter, he wants to battle and he's a hard worker. He's got goals in him and he's determined to come here, play football and do well.
"He's a great addition to the squad. He can fill a host of roles, but his experience and determination are great.
"If we add one or two more players then we will be in good shape for the run-in."
Norwich currently sit 16th in the Premier League table, just two points outside the relegation zone and next host Liverpool on Saturday at Carrow Road.
The clash presents Naismith with a chance to not only make his debut for the Canaries, but to strengthen his Everton connections with a goal against their Merseyside rivals.
