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.
