The German club's sporting director, Klaus Allofs, confirmed on Sunday afternoon after his team's mid-winter friendly that Klose's move to the Premier League is in the advanced stages of being completed.

Alex Neil revealed on Saturday after City's 3-0 top flight reverse at Bournemouth he was interested in recruiting the 27-year-old, who is now expected to finalise his move over the next 24 hours after agreeing personal terms with the Canaries.

'We have largely reached an agreement with Norwich, and so has Timm as far as I know,' Allofs told German media, with the centre-back making it clear to the Champions League hopefuls he wants regular first team football ahead of his country's Euro 2016 appearance in the summer.

Klose was an ever-present for the Germans last season but has fallen down the pecking order behind Brazilians Dante and Naldo, although he did feature in the Champions League group stage win over Manchester United prior to Christmas that earned Wolfsburg a last 16 tie against Ghent.

Klose will become Norwich's fourth signing of the window after deals were concluded for Matt Jarvis, Ivo Pinto and Ben Godfrey.
