Soloman Taiwo looks certain to become Paul Lambert's fourth signing of the summer.

The Cardiff midfielder was in Norwich yesterday, with just the formalities of a medical to be completed before he joins the Canaries.

Reports suggest the fee for the 24-year-old is in the region of �100,000.

Taiwo joined Cardiff from Dagenham & Redbridge last August, but made just two starts for the Bluebirds, and watched their play-off final defeat to Blackpool from the stands, having undergone surgery on a knee injury.

Lambert has already signed Brighton midfielder Andrew Crofts, centre-half Elliott Ward who was out of contract at Coventry, and left-back Steven Smith.

But while he has been quick off the mark with outfield players he will have to be patient over goalkeeper Fraser Forster - although chief executive David McNally has indicated that City are in a good position should Magpies boss Chris Hughton allow the 22-year-old out on loan again.

"We would like Fraser to be back at the football club and we, as we do with most football clubs, have an excellent relationship with Newcastle, so we are in dialogue with Newcastle about the possibility," he said.

"It may or may not happen - first and foremost he is a Newcastle United player and if he's in their plans for the forthcoming season then there's not a lot we can do about that.

"But we are in close dialogue with them and if he goes anywhere it is likely to be to Norwich City."
