Football: McKenzie signs.

FOOTBALL: Coventry have signed Norwich striker Leon McKenzie in a pounds 1million deal.

The 28-year-old, who scored 20 goals during his stay at Carrow Road, has signed a three-year deal at the Ricoh Arena after falling out of favour with Canaries boss Nigel Worthington.

Sky Blues manager Micky Adams could not hide his delight at landing the striker.

"Leon is a player who has shown his ability to score goals both in this division and the Premiership, which is a massive bonus and we are delighted to have been able to bring him to the club," said Adams. "He has obvious attributes with his pace, skill and eye for a goal and it gives us added options up front."
