One by one, the pieces of City boss Peter Grant's promotion-chasing jigsaw are now being put firmly in place and in a Carrow Road press conference just moments ago, the club announced the arrival of former Hearts midfielder Julien Brellier on a two-year deal.
The 25-year-old Frenchman, who had been out of contract after leaving the Jambos this summer, had been tipped for a move to one of the Old Firm after becoming a fans favourite at the Edinburgh club, with Walter Smith's Rangers said to be very keen on adding Brellier to their ranks.
Despite Brellier being one of the most popular players at Tynecastle, it was frequently reported in the media that Hearts' owner Vladimir Romanov did not share the supporters' high opinion of him and after the signing of Bruno Aguiar, Brellier was used more often as a substitute.
Not surprisingly, in an April 2006 interview, he suggested he was unhappy with the treatment he had received – not the first unhappy Jambos player under the stewardship of Romanov I hasten to add.
However in June 2006 it was confirmed that Brellier had agreed to extend his stay with Hearts until 2007.
The 2006-07 season continued in a similar vein to the previous year for Brellier, with the Frenchman starting less than half of Hearts' matches and his cause can't have been helped by a controversial sending-off in the Champions League qualifying round defeat to AEK Athens.
Following much speculation during the season, in May 2007 it was confirmed that he would leave Hearts, after rejecting a final contract offer.
Tough-tackling Brellier, who is described as a defensive midfielder, also had offers from his homeland as well as in Scotland but has opted to pursue a career in the English Championship, much to the delight of Grant.
Don't go too far away; much, much more to follow.
