Norwich still in the market

Neil Adams says Norwich City remain in the market for further additions to his squad following the signings of Cameron Jerome and Carlos Cuellar.

Jerome arrived from Stoke City for an undisclosed fee reported to be in the region of 1.5million, while Cuellar was a free agent following his release from Sunderland at the end of last season.

Their arrivals took the Canaries' tally of summer signings to five alongside Lewis Grabban, Kyle Lafferty and Gary O'Neil, although the same day saw midfielder Leroy Fer head to Queens Park Rangers for a fee which could rise to 10m.

Robert Snodgrass and Anthony Pilkington have also departed Carrow Road this summer and Ricky van Wolfswinkel has left on loan, but Adams is keen to see no further exits as he looks to boost his options.

"We'll still be looking, there's still a few days left, again hopefully it's people coming and we're talking about incomings rather than outgoings," Adams is quoted in The Pink'un.

"I've said all along we'll do what we feel we need to do and as and when players are available we'll see what we can do."

Jerome, 27, who spent the majority of last season on loan at Crystal Palace, has penned a three-year deal at Carrow Road and Adams had been tracking him for some time.

On what Jerome will bring, Adams said: "Experience is primary but quality as well.

"Cameron is one who we've been looking at for a little bit longer, certainly in the summer we couldn't get him but things move pretty quickly in football, as we know, and obviously delighted that he's signed.

"He gives us power, pace and experience as well, and gives us more attacking options for what will be a long season."

While Cuellar, 32, has signed a one-year deal with the option of a second year after spending the last two seasons at the Stadium of Light with Sunderland.

Adams said: "Carlos, again, is a vastly experience player. That one was pretty quickly really, we knew he was available, got in there quickly with him.

"Great lad, he's come down, proved his fitness to us. He will bring quality to us, that little bit of guile as well that's going to be needed and of course defensive cover where we're a little bit short.

"So great to get those two signed on the dotted line and they will form a big part of our squad."
