Norwich have confirmed the loan signing of Sporting Kansas City's Kei Kamara after the Sierra Leone forward was granted a visa.

The deal for Kamara was agreed last Wednesday, ahead of the 1-1 draw with Tottenham, and Luciano Becchio followed from Leeds 24 hours later on transfer deadline day. Norwich boss Chris Hughton was enthusiastic about Kamara and speaking after the Spurs draw, Hughton said: "I think he'll give us another dimension in the forward area. "He's a player that's done very, very well in the MLS over the last few seasons, scored a lot of goals, a lot of assists. "From what I've seen of him, we're not just taking an average player from that division. We're taking a player from that division that has excelled in recent seasons. "How quickly he can adapt, how much he can give us. We're quite looking forward to the prospect of seeing that." Norwich are 14th in the Premier League, seven points clear of the relegation zone, but have just two wins from 12 in all competitions.
