The Northern Ireland international was one of a number of players who chose to put the Rangers saga behind them by completing moves to new clubs.
Lafferty, who joined Rangers from Burnley in 2008, played more than 100 times for the Light Blues.
His future at the beleaguered Glasgow club had been the subject of much speculation, but the 24-year-old has now brought down the curtain on his four-year spell.
A statement on the Swiss club's official website confirmed Lafferty was joining on a three-year deal, adding: "He will be presented at a press conference on Monday, then will join his new team-mates for training."
Meanwhile, defender Steven Whittaker is joining Norwich on a four-year deal.
The 28-year-old is new manager Chris Hughton's first signing.
Hughton told the club's official website: "In Steven we have a player who is very versatile.
"He can play anywhere across the back four and anywhere across midfield, so there's plenty of versatility there.
"It's probably a good time for him. Sometimes it is time to move on to a different club and go there with a lot of enthusiasm and he has international experience too.
"He has of course been used to playing at a very high level when he was at Rangers and in a lot of big games with a passionate crowd behind him.
"So the stage of the Premier League is certainly one that won't faze him with his experience."
