LUFC Warnock finally lands his man

Neil Warnock admits he has been tracking Adam Drury for a number of years after making him the clubs second signing of the summer.

Warnock has finally landed Drury after trying and failing to sign him during his time at Sheffield United.

The 33 year old is out of contract this summer and he has agreed to sign for Leeds on a two-year deal when his contract expires at Norwich City at the end of this month.

Warnock is delighted to signing the left sided defender as he looks to build his squad ahead of the new season. Speaking on the official website , Warnock said, "From July 1st he will be our player and he`s a player I have looked at for many years.

"He`s a very good professional. I think he`s a good defender, he`s quick and I thought we needed a bit of experience in certain places, and that desire and will. And with Adam, you know what you are going to get.

"I`m delighted to have him. He has the experience we need."


The 33 year old will bring a wealth of experience to Elland Road having made over 500 career appearances.

Drury started his career with Peterborough United. He came through the ranks at London Road and he made over 160 appearances having made his debut in 1996 at just 18 years of age.

He was a regular in his five seasons at Peterborough, helping the club win promotion from the fourth tier of English football before signing for Norwich in March 2001 in a deal worth £500,000.

The defender spent eleven seasons at Carrow Road, in which time he tasted promotion on three occasions, twice to the Premier League.

In Norwich`s first stint in the Premier League in 2004/05, he missed just four games.

Drury was again a regular for Norwich has they won back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League.

Last season Drury made 16 appearances, with 12 of them coming in the Premier League. His last and his 361st appearances for Norwich came on April 28th against Liverpool at Carrow Road.

Drury becomes Warnock`s second signing of the summer, joining fellow defender Jason Pearce who signed from Portsmouth last month.
