New Norwich City striker Lewis Grabban is targeting promotion to the Premier League after sealing his move from Bournemouth.

The 26-year-old has signed a three-year deal, with the option of a further year, at Carrow Road.

"It's good to start a new chapter, get going again with Norwich and hopefully get promotion," he told the club's official website.

"I've played here before and the atmosphere's been great, the fans are great. It's exciting to be a part of the club now and hopefully do well for them."

Grabban is manager Neil Adams' first signing since taking the job on a full-time basis.

"I am delighted that Lewis has put pen to paper to become my first signing," Adams said.

"He will provide pace, intelligent movement and a high work ethic to the front line, and of course he showed in the Championship last season that he is capable of scoring a variety of different goals.

"Lewis possesses precisely the type of attitude, application and quality that I expect from my players, and I am really looking forward to integrating him into the squad."
