Huddersfield Town reported to have accepted bid for Pilkington from Norwich City

Huddersfield Town are reported to have accepted an offer from Norwich City for winger Anthony Pilkington.

According to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, a �2m-plus package has been accepted for the former Manchester United trainee.

The 23-year-old handed in a transfer request last week, with the Canaries one of a number of clubs thought to be waiting in the wings.

Pilkington, who broke a leg against Rochdale in March, scored 14 goals last season, including a run of six in consecutive games, and was a firm fans’ favourite at the Galpharm Stadium. He signed a contract extension to 2014 on Christmas Eve last year but now wants a move.
