Derby have completed the Bosman free transfer signing of Lee Croft from Norwich.

Arriving at Pride Park was always likely for the 24-year-old and Nigel Clough believes that the midfielder will be a terrific capture.

“This is a terrific capture for us and fills a position in the team where we need extra quality.

Lee is an exciting talent who is proven at this level and above and has a great attitude.

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.”

Clough was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

The arrival of the former Man City midfielder does fill an area that we had trouble with last season and if Croft shows the quality that won him the Norwich Player of the Year last season we’ll not go far wrong.
