Adam Drury made over 350 appearances for Norwich

Leeds have completed the signing of Norwich defender Adam Drury who has agreed to join the club from July 1.

The 33-year-old left-back, who will sign a two-year contract, is manager Neil Warnock's second summer signing following the arrival last month of Jason Pearce from Portsmouth.

"He's a very good professional," Warnock told the club's official website. "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're going to get."

He added: "I'm delighted to have him. He's got the experience we need. He played 16 times for Norwich last season and he's better than a lot of full backs in the Premier League.

"He's a good lad. That's half the battle as well. It gives us a good mix because we've got young Pearcey on that side as well so we can put that to bed now and move on to a different area. When you speak to him he's full of enthusiasm and when you get released from a club you want to prove people wrong."

Drury, awarded a testimonial match against Celtic at Carrow Road in May, has made over 350 appearances for Norwich, who he joined from Peterborough for £500,00 in March 2001.
