Southend United have signed former Ipswich Town striker Noel Hunt on a free transfer.

Now, the Irishman has agreed a one-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, at the League One side.

"He's an ambitious lad and is a feisty character. Hopefully he'll bring all that to the party and I'm really looking forward to working with him and the rest of the team.

It's a massive coup and probably my biggest signing since I've been here. It's a sign of the backing from the owner once again that we've managed to get him in.”

Norwich City have confirmed that former manager Neil Adams has returned to the club.

Adams resigned in January with the Canaries stuttering in The Championship, and was replaced by Hamilton Academical boss Alex Neil.

After a break away from football, Neil is now back at Carrow Road and will oversee the development of Norwich players who move on loan to other clubs.

"We are delighted to welcome Neil back to Colney as we said we would when his time as our manager came to an end in January.

Neil has always been a fantastic servant to this Football Club and his knowledge of players, his coaching experience and his understanding of the modern loan market will all be a huge asset in this newly-created role.

This will help the club to ensure our players receive maximum benefit from their time spent on loan and provide best-in-class monitoring of their progress while playing with other clubs.

In addition, the loan market is an increasingly significant element of financial activity for top clubs and Neil will be responsible for helping us to maximise our efficiency in this area of our strategy.”
