Colchester midfielder David Fox has been reunited with his former boss Paul Lambert at newly-promoted Norwich.
The 26-year-old has moved to Carrow Road on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee as Lambert seeks to build a squad for life in the Championship.
Lambert signed the player from Blackpool last summer while still in charge of the Us and he is delighted to have snared the ex-Manchester United trainee once more.
The Canaries boss told the club's official website: "I signed him at Colchester last year and he had a brilliant start to the season.
"He's someone who will hopefully benefit the team with his wide range of passing and I'm delighted to be bringing him to Carrow Road."
Colchester chairman Robbie Cowling said it was in the club's best interests to let him go.
He told the Us' official website: "David came to us and explained that he and his family had never really settled in the area so we agreed that if another club came in for him, we would consider letting him go.
"We got him on a free contract 12 months ago and now Norwich have offered a fee for him.
"It is not productive to have unhappy players here at Colchester United and it was in our and David's best interests that he moved on."
