According to SkySports.com this morning, Stockport County forward Oli Johnson is in Norfolk for a medical after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.
The cash-strapped Edgeley Park outfit are understood to be willing to listen to offers for all their squad and it is thought the Canaries can pick up Johnson for a nominal fee.
The Wakefield-born started his career in the ninth tier with Nostell Miners Welfare, before impressing in a trial with the Hatters.
He joined the North West outfit in October 2008, signing a seven month contract until the end of the season.
Johnson became an instant favourite at County, scoring four goals in his first four starts at Edgeley Park and in May last year, the Daily Mirror linked the 22-year-old with a move to Premier League side Fulham.
Canary fans hoping for a goal machine may be disappointed though, with Johnson only finding the net once this season, despite making 19 appearances.
But it’s clear that he is highly thought of at County and his arrival would be a significant coup for Paul Lambert as he tries to add a new face or two for City’s promotion push.
The Canaries were also strongly linked with highly-rated Millwall defender Zak Whitbread yesterday, with the South London Press going as far as claiming that the former Liverpool man was in Norfolk for talks after City and the Lions agreed a fee.
