Jackson relishing Bundesliga challenge

New Eintracht Braunschweig striker Simeon Jackson has said it was time to seek a new challenge after struggling to get into the Norwich first team under manager Chris Hughton last season.

Jackson, 26, joined Bundesliga newcomers Braunschweig on a free transfer last week. The Canada international had been looking for a new club since being released by Norwich at the end of the campaign.

He scored the goal that won the Canaries promotion to the Premier League under the management of Paul Lambert in 2011, and went on to feature in 22 top-flight games for the club in 2011-12.

But he found chances harder to come by in Hughton's less attacking approach and said: "There were new ideas through the change in the dugout.

"It was good experience - I enjoyed my time at Norwich, but it was time to begin a new chapter."

Jackson had been linked with a switch to Championship side AFC Bournemouth and, despite having "an attractive offer", chose a new country for his next move.

And after signing a two-year deal, he said he wanted to help Braunschweig stay in the Bundesliga as they make their first appearance in the German top flight since 1985.

"If you are the new kid in town it is always difficult. But the lads are really helpful," he said. "The team spirit is very good.

"I want to learn fast. We need to stay in the Bundesliga, and I want to help the team achieve that goal."
