Veteran midfielder David Norris has signed for Peterborough United on a three month contract.

33-year-old Norris, who was released by Leeds United on transfer deadline day, has struggled with injury in the last two years and has made just one appearance this season. Norris has made more than 400 league appearances and has previously played for Ipswich, Portsmouth and Plymouth but appeared just 30 times during his three years at Leeds.

He has joined the Posh with the club in tenth position in League One and was on the bench for today’s 2-1 against Rochdale. Norris will wear the number 23 shirt for United and told the Peterborough website:

“It has happened quickly. 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 has been club captain at both Ipswich and Portsmouth, and he played for the latter during their second financial meltdown, scoring a famous equalizer against bitter rivals Southampton in April 2012.
