Vastly experienced striker Cameron Jerome arrived at Kenilworth Road as a free agent as the fourth signing of the close season, having scored 15 goals in 38 appearances last season for Sky Bet League One club Milton Keynes.
Jerome has more than 500 games and 145 goals to his name at club level in this country, having begun his career with Cardiff City in 2004.
After netting 20 goals for the South Wales club in the 2005/06 Championship campaign, he was signed by Birmingham City for a fee of £3 million.
He spent the following five years at St Andrew’s, where he experienced the highs and lows of two promotions and two relegations, whilst also lifting the League Cup in 2011 after the Blues’ win against Arsenal at Wembley.
The striker joined Stoke City later that year for a reported fee of £4m, but following 50 appearances in the space of three seasons at the Britannia Stadium, he opted to switch to Norwich City in 2014.
The Huddersfield-born striker played 130 times for the Canaries and scored 38 goals, one of which came in the 2015 Championship play-off final victory against Middlesbrough.
Following a successful four years at Carrow Road, Jerome has since played in the second tier for Derby County and then had a two-year spell with Goztepe in Turkey – scoring eight times in 49 appearances – before returning to England in October 2020.
