Norwich have beaten the transfer deadline to sign midfield duo Simon Lappin and Mark Fotheringham.
Lappin, a 24-year-old former Scotland Under 21 international, has joined from St Mirren for an undisclosed fee while Canaries boss Peter Grant (pictured) snapped up free agent Fotheringham on a deal which will keep him at Carrow Road until the summer.
Lappin, a left-sided creative midfielder, has penned a two-and-a-half year deal with The Canaries. He made 184 appearances for The Saints, scoring 12 goals.
Fotheringham made just three senior appearances for Celtic after coming up through the youth ranks before moving to his home-town club Dundee in 2003. He went on to make 55 appearances before moving to Freiburg in Germany for a season.
He joined FC Aarau in Switzerland last year but parted company with them earlier this month and has since been training with Rangers.
Meanwhile, young striker Ian Henderson has extended his loan deal with League One Rotherham until the end of the season.
