Norwich City have reportedly agreed a fee with Leeds for captain Robert Snodgrass.
Sky Sports News reported this morning that the two clubs have agreed a fee for the Scottish international.
Leeds confirmed last week they had rejected an initial offer for the 24-year-old, who is about to enter the final year of his current contract and has yet to sign a new Elland Road deal.
The left winger finished last season with 13 goals and 14 assists - the second-highest in the Championship and was voted both Leeds’ Fans Player of the Year and Player’s Player of the Year.
Canaries boss Chris Hughton was quoted at the weekend: “Everybody now is aware that we have made a bid for him. Leeds have come out with that with regards to their thoughts and feelings on the matter but, as I say, I can only leave that to the important people at the club.
“With any players you identify and wish to bring to the club you would rather do it sooner than later. In most occasions that is not the case particularly in this league and hence if you look at the amount of business the Premier League clubs have done up until now it is not massive and there is no doubt over the next few weeks and certainly the last couple of weeks of the window possibly the bulk of business will be done.”
Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong is predicting good times ahead with the Canaries in the Premier League, after finally breaking his own personal spiral of career lows.
