Lee Croft completed his move on Wednesday and the midfielder is happy to become a Derby player and is targeting a promotion push this season.

“I am delighted with this move and I can’t wait to get started with pre-season training.

Derby showed me their intentions early and showed how much they wanted me which was a big factor in me wanting to come here.

Derby is a huge club with a great history and tradition, a tremendous support base and I feel there is a lot of synergy in both the club’s and my ambition.

There is also a good squad of players here already and with the improvement that the gaffer (Nigel Clough) is looking to make I have no doubt that we can have success and push for promotion.”

Croft was talking to the Evening Telegraph.

If the 24-year-old’s efforts on the pitch match those of his words off it then we’ll get good service from the former Man City player over the next three-years, and hopefully more.

Croft joins us fresh from being voted Norwich’s Player of the Year last season so that is a good sign right away.
