The 28-year-old was the leading scorer in the country last season, tied with Manchester City superstar Sergio Aguero, and has been recruited to boost Town's anaemic front line as Paul Lambert's men bid to bounce back up to the Championship at the first time of asking.

"Ipswich is a Premier League club and I want to help them get back to that level," Norwood told the club website.
