Former Canaries striker Danny Crow has signed for Cambridge United. Crow, 22, who had his contract cancelled by Peterborough earlier this month, put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Cambridge until May, 2010.

The Yarmouth-born striker, who made four senior appearances - three of them in the Premier League - for Norwich, had a good first season at London Road when he scored 17 goals, but has fallen out of favour with current manager Darren Ferguson.

Cambridge manager Gary Brabin said: “He's got a great touch, he holds things up. I think he'll be the perfect foil for our other strikers.

“Danny is someone I've watched over the years and he's someone Paul (Carden, captain-assistant manager) played with at Peterborough when he first came on to the scene and he was hot property at the time.

Crow is expected to go straight into the squad for tomorrow's home game against Torquay.
