Todd Cantwell is expected to leave Norwich City on loan before the end of the January transfer window, although several details are still to be decided on the midfielder’s exit.
As reported by The Telegraph’s John Percy, Bournemouth are in talks to sign Cantwell on loan, while Olympiakos have expressed an interest. MyFootballWriter understands there to be interest from other clubs as well.
City are as yet unsure of the financial package that will go with any departure for the 23-year-old, with loan fees and future options depending on whether the interested club is from England or abroad.
Cantwell has struggled to make an impact this season, with various issues including form and fitness keeping him out of the Norwich team. Dean Smith’s arrival at Carrow Road as head coach was seen as a potential fresh start for the under-21 international, but he failed to impress early in Smith’s tenure and has found himself out of the first-team picture, failing to register a single goal or assist this term.
City’s transfer window has been focused on outs this winter, with Championship loans for Onel Hernandez, Jordan Hugill and Bali Mumba the highlights for Stuart Webber.
Cantwell’s current deal is set to expire this summer but the Canaries retain an option to extend it by a further 12 months, which they are likely to take up in order to maximize his value.
