The Canaries were today believed to be close to completing their third signing of the summer in Cardiff City's Solomon Taiwo.

The 25-year-old Nigerian-born midfielder was reported to be heading for Norwich to undergo a medical before sealing his move.

Taiwo joined the Bluebirds for �200,000 from Dagenham & Redbridge last August on a three-year deal but made just 10 first team appearances for Dave Jones' side.

City boss Paul Lambert is said to have agreed a fee with Cardiff, reported in South Wales to be about �150,000. If he signs, Taiwo will join Brighton midfielder Andrew Crofts and Coventry defender Elliott Ward among Lambert's new recruits in what has already been a busy close season on the transfer front at Carrow Road.

Colchester chairman Robbie Cowling, meanwhile, insisted there had been no approach for defender Marc Tierney, also linked with City.

The 24-year-old full-back was signed by Lambert in January last year when he was Colchester boss.

"Marc is in the last year of his contract. Again we've offered him improved terms and we hope he's going to accept those and stay with the club," said Cowling.
