The word tonight is that the Canaries will unveil their 11th signing of the summer tomorrow.
And it ain't who you think it's going to be, either.
In fact, old Ferret would be amazed if anyone had heard of the kid; because with the Doc out injured for at least the next three months with the knock he sustained in the opening tour game in Sweden, the word on the street is that No11 is his teenage replacement. The young, centre-half loan that Roeder admitted last week that he was keen on adding to his pack.
His name? Troy Archibald-Henville.
Which at 18 characters long should be a test and a half for the kitman to squeeze his name onto the back of City shirt.
He is 19-years-old and, in fairness, sounds just the part in terms of a young, apprentice centre-half.
He was, after all, skipper of Spurs Reserves team last season; and proved equally adept at both right-back and right-sided centre-half.
Two appearances on the bench as an unused sub are the sum total of his first team experiences, but the Newham-born teenager can't be too much of a mug to be Spurs Reserves skipper.
It would then leave the gaffer with the choice of two from four centre-half wise – Dejan Stefanovic, John Kennedy, Jason Shackell and Archibald-Henville all adding to the new sense of competition at Colney. And all with the Doc to come as and when he returns from injury.
As for whether No12 for the summer is going to be Mr Ameobi, still no word.
But if our Dean is, indeed, on the move in the next few days, Norwich's hand could yet be strengthened by an unexpected �1.5 million windfall.
But that saga is for another day.
Tonight and the story is all about No11, Spurs Reserve skipper Archibald-Henville.
