In a post on Twitter, the striker said: ""So tomorrow is the last time I could potentially pull on an Ipswich Town top.

"I've met some great people around the place during my time here. They helped me settle in quickly and provided me with some great conversations.

"The managers I've had over my time here I've had a good relationship with and have been fortunate enough to work with some great coaches.

"Ipswich are in good hands with the boss and his coaching staff, I've really come to enjoy everything about the gaffer, Martyn and Chaz having worked closely with them and I wish them all the best.

"It was an honour every time I pulled on the shirt, I tried to give my all every game and I hope you understand for the lack of ability I have tried to work my hardest.

"Until our paths cross again."

During his time at Portman Road, Norwood has made 87 appearances, scoring 27 goals. Six of those have come this season, having had enjoyed a return to form under Kieran McKenna.
