Four Norwich City youngsters have agreed to sign the one-year professional contracts offered to them by the club.

Academy scholars Robert Eagle, Andrew Fisk, Andrew Cave-Brown and Matthew Halliday were all kept on by the Canaries in what is an annual selection process for the club's up-and-coming players.

And it was revealed yesterday that the deals they were offered have been accepted, with the paperwork being tied up on July 1.

Academy manager Ricky Martin said he was delighted to secure the signatures of the four lads.

“It's great the four have agreed to sign professional terms with Norwich City,” he said.

“It will be interesting to see how they progress with the club over the next year. The hard work for them starts now.”

Eagle, 19, and Fisk, 18, are both midfielders while Cave-Brown, 17, and Halliday, 19, usually operate in defence.

Once the four have put pen to paper in the summer it will bring the tally of youngsters from this crop to join Nigel Worthington's squad to six, with goalkeeper Joe Lewis and midfielder Rossi Jarvis already professionals.
