Braunschweig - Eintracht Braunschweig have added to their attacking options for the coming season by signing striker Simeon Jackson from English Premier League side Norwich City FC.

The 26-year-old has put to paper on a two-year deal with the Bundesliga newboys and will wear the shirt number 18.

Premier League experience


"In Simeon we have another player that will add to the quality in our attack. He is a versatile footballer and the second such player we have recruited after Torsten Oehrl," commented Lions' sporting director Marc Arnold. Head coach Thorsten Lieberknecht added, "I've watched him for a long time now. He is a player that works hard for the team and is extremely quick."

Jackson himself was delighted to embark on a new chapter in his career. "This transfer was the next step for me and I'm really looking forward to the challenge of playing in the Bundesliga," said the Jamaica-born striker.

Canadian international


Jackson joined Norwich from Gillingham FC in 2010 and scored the decisive goal in helping the club gain promotion to the Premier League in 2011. In his last two seasons in the English top flight, he scored four goals in 35 league appearances.

Jackson debuted for the Canadian national team in 2009 and has notched six times in 34 games.
