Derby County have wrapped up the signing winger Lee Croft on a three-year contract following his exit from Norwich City. The 24-year-old had been with the Canaries for three seasons, having started his career with Manchester City. Boss Nigel Clough told the club's official website: "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." Croft scored nine goals in 131 appearances for Norwich, having made just a handful of starts for the Citizens.
