​Derby County have completed the signing of Cameron Jerome from Championship rivals Norwich in a deal reported to be worth almost £2m.


The 31-year-old has struggled for form this season at Carrow Road, scoring just one league goal in the ​Championship this season. Despite his indifferent scoring record, the experienced striker joins the Rams as they look to strengthen their squad ahead for their push towards securing automatic promotion.


​Derby boss Gary Rowett had shown interest in signing Jerome during the summer, and now his man, with Jerome reported to have signed a one-and-a-half year deal.

“It’s been a long day, but I am delighted to get the paperwork signed and I can’t wait to get started tomorrow morning,” Jerome told Derby's offic​ial website in an exclusive interview.


“I was quite aware of the interest and I was flattered by it. Gary being the manager that he is, he’s been true to his word and came back for a second time.”


The former England Under-21 international has enjoyed successful spells with ​Cardiff​Birmingham and Norwich over the course of his career, scoring the opening goal at Wembley during the Canaries 2-0 win over ​Middlesbrough in the Championship playoff final three seasons ago.

Jerome moves to Pride Park after scoring 42 times in 138 matches for Norwich during his four-year spell in East Anglia.
