Jason Jarrett joined the Canaries on a Bosman-style free transfer in the summer of 2005 after rejecting the offer of a new three-year contract with Barclays Premiership new boys Wigan Athletic.
The 25-year-old midfielder will be reuniting with City boss Nigel Worthington after the pair worked together at Blackpool where Jason began his career during Nigel's time as manager at Bloomfield Road.
An athletic midfielder, Jason made his professional debut for the Seasiders before taking in spells at Wrexham and Bury. It was from Bury that he joined Wigan in March 2002 for a knockdown £75,000, with the Gigg Lane club desperate to boost their finances.
He made an immediate impact at Wigan and in his first full season helped the Lactics to win the old Second Division championship in 2003. Jason enjoyed an impressive season at the JJB Stadium in 2003-04, but a broken leg sustained in pre-season ahead of the 2004-05 campaign saw him miss out on a majority of the Lactics' promotion-winning season.
A loan spell at Stoke City helped him regain his fitness in the early part of 2005 before he returned to the Wigan squad for the end of season run-in.
With over 150 League appearances to his name, Jason brings a useful blend of youth and experience with him to Carrow Road. Tagged a box-to-box midfielder, Jason's arrival at Carrow Road will stiffen up competition for places in the Canary midfield as City build for the 2005-06 Coca-cola Championship campaign.
