Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley has confirmed the Imps will 'benefit financially' if and when Sean Raggett moves on from Norwich City.

The 24-year-old became the Canaries' 10th signing of the summer for an initial fee believed to be around £250,000 before being loaned straight back to the League Two side.

Raggett has been tipped for a big future in the game and Lincoln chief, Cowley, hopes they can count upon a big windfall when Raggett enters the next stage of his career after Norwich.

'We've got the clauses that will allow us to benefit financially when Sean moves on from Norwich,' Cowley told the Lincolnshire Echo.

'I know where Sean Raggett's career is going. So somewhere down the line we'll get the money that Sean is worth.'

Raggett is expected to join up with City on January 1 upon completion of his loan spell although Daniel Farke's side have no call-back option on the defender until then.

After starring in Lincoln's run to the FA Cup quarter finals last season Raggett was linked with several clubs this summer including West Ham and Sunderland.

But Norwich won the race for his signature and Cowley has been pleased at the way Raggett has behaved throughout an uncertain close season.
