Derby have completed the signing of former Norwich winger Lee Croft on a free transfer.

Croft, who celebrated his 24th birthday on Sunday, has signed a three-year contract at Pride Park.

"This is a terrific capture for us and fills a position in the team where we need extra quality," said Rams boss Nigel Clough. "Lee is an exciting talent who is proven at this level and above and he has a great attitude."

He continued: "He has shown a great desire to play for Derby County as well and these are the types of players and characters I want at this football club as we look to progress and improve."

Wigan-born Croft began his career with Manchester City and made 32 appearances for the club, while also earning England Under-20 honours.

He joined Norwich in a £700,000 deal in the summer of 2006 and became a fans' favourite at Carrow Road. Croft, the Canaries' player of the year last season, scored nine goals in 131 appearances during his time at the Norfolk club.
