Norwich City close in on Kyle Lafferty?

Reports in Italy claim that Palermo striker Kyle Lafferty is close to securing a switch to Championship side Norwich City.

Norwich City are reportedly on the verge of signing Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty.

Speculation in the Italian press has claimed that the 26-year-old, who has spent the last 12 months with Palermo, will have a medical in Norfolk over the next 24 hours.

Lafferty himself confirmed that his departure is close to completion when he said: "I like Palermo and it was nice to play here, but Palermo has decided to sell me and I respect their decision."

The centre-forward started his career with Burnley, before going on to have spells with Rangers and Swiss club Sion.
