Recently released David Norris finds new club quickly, joins Peterborough United

Ex-Leeds midfielder David Norris has joined Peterborough United on a free transfer.

Peterborough United have confirmed the arrival of recently released Leeds United midfielder David Norris on a deal until the end of the season.

Norris, 33, was released by Leeds earlier this month having fallen out of favour under manager Neil Redfearn, making him a free agent.

The midfielder has now joined League One side Peterborough United on a deal until the end of the season as manager Darren Ferguson looks to add some experience to his young Posh side in a valiant attempt to make the playoffs.

"It has happened quickly," said Norris on the club's official website. "I was at Leeds United until last week and that ended quicker than I expected so the last few days there have been a few conversations and I am pleased it is all done and dusted and I can concentrate on playing football."

Norris played 34 times in his first season at Elland Road, but played in just one game under Brain McDermott last term - and that came in the Capital One Cup.

The same situation has arisen this season, with Norris' only football of the campaign coming in the Capital One Cup against Bradford, so with only two games played in nearly two years, it was best for Leeds to let Norris leave.

Now he will look to get his career back on track at London Road, and will feel that he still has plenty to offer despite now being 33.
