Former Norwich City striker Jamie Cureton has signed a permanent deal with League One outfit Exeter.

Cureton arrived at Exeter on August 2 on a non-contract basis after being released by the Canaries in the summer following the completion of his deal at Carrow Road.

He has come on as a substitute in both Grecians' league games this season without finding the back of the net but has impressed sufficiently to be offered permanent employment in the South West.

Cureton spent four months on loan at Shrewsbury last season after falling out of favour at Carrow Road, again without scoring a goal.

But during his career, Cureton has netted 204 goals in all competitions, 76 of which came during his time at Bristol Rovers between 1996-2000.

The veteran striker, who will turn 35 on Saturday, has also played for Bournemouth, Reading, QPR, Swindon, Colchester and Barnsley during his 17-year career.
