Norwich City have reportedly agreed a deal to sign young striker Sebastian Soto.
The 19-year-old American is currently on contract with Hannover.
His deal with the Bundesliga 2 side expires next month.
Soto will be loaned out by City next season, as the US Under-23 striker won’t initially qualify for a work permit in England, says the report, in Bild.

Soto was born in the USA to a Chilean father and a mother of Mexican descent, so is eligible to play for three countries at senior international level.
City were earlier this week linked with American brothers, Bayern Munich’s Taylor Booth and his younger brother Zach Booth.
