Norwich City have completed the signing of Gillingham's prolific striker Simeon Jackson for an undisclosed fee.

Jackson has signed a two-year contract with the newly-promoted Canaries following a blistering return in League One last season.

The Gills have helped offset the loss of the striker by landing Cody McDonald on a season-long deal.

Jackson, who scored 35 league goals in two seasons with The Gills, could be at Norwich even longer as the club have an additional one-year option on his deal.

Delighted

City boss Paul Lambert told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to have Simeon at the football club, he'll be a great addition to the squad and will put pressure on the other lads.

"He's a goalscorer, scored loads of goals for Gillingham the last two seasons and is an international striker.

"We first saw him at Rushden & Diamonds, where his goalscoring record was brilliant and obviously came up against him last season when he was at Gillingham."
