Transfer Rumour: Norwich Chase Grimsby Hotshot Omar Bogle

Reading are one of a number of Championship clubs said to be interested in the former Solihull Moors man, which includes Norwich City, Leeds United, Brentford and Nottingham Forest but, so far, it is only Rotherham United chasing the 19-goal frontman who have tabled a bid for the striker, their latest offer rumoured to be in the region of £850,000.

“It was initially thought he would leave Blundell Park for around £750,000 but he is now set to depart in a move worth more than £1-million.”

Talking to the Grimsby Telegraph, Mariners’ boss Marcus Bignot added:

Mariners boss Marcus Bignot said: “We have had one club (Rotherham) in for Omar, and we have just rejected their fourth offer.

“Omar is not for sale. We have rejected the offer 100 per cent.

“At this moment in time, one club has had four valuations, and we can’t even come to the table for any negotiations.

“His valuation is what people are prepared to pay for him. And if we did agree to the fourth offer, I wouldn’t want to go out in Grimsby.

“Omar is a goalscorer, and I’ve had him for three years so I know what it takes for him to move on to the next level.

“It’s more than about scoring goals. There’s more to it than that. I think he’s been effected by the speculation, and he’s only human.”

Transfer Rumour: Leeds make enquiry for Sergi Canos

But a deal looks unlikely because the Carrow Road club reportedly want him off the books for good.

Norwich only bought Canos from Liverpool in the summer for £2.5m, but he’s not made an impression for Alex Neil’s side and is free to leave.

The 19-year-old has played just nine times for the Canaries - with his last league appearance coming in August.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claim Leeds have made an offer to loan Canos until the summer - with the option of a full-time stay in the summer.

But Norwich are holding out for a permanent deal which could see United miss out.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich Linked to Bristol Rovers Striker Matty Taylor

The Mail also say Bristol Rovers striker Matty Taylor can go for £300,000 and that QPR and Brentford are among the clubs to have been alerted to his availability.

The other clubs are Wolves, Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich, the Mail say.

Taylor, 26, reportedly has a clause in his Rovers contract allowing him to move this month, and has scored 73 goals in 126 appearances for the West Country club.

 

Transfer Rumour: Norwich City Bid Accepted For Wigan’s Yanic Wildschut

Norwich City are seemingly closing in on Wigan’s left-sided player Yanic Wildschut, with reports on Sunday afternoon that the Canaries have taken a significant step forward in the race for the 25-year-old.

Alex Neil refused to confirm City had tabled a £4m offer for the Dutchman after Saturday’s 2-0 Championship win at home to Birmingham, with both Norwich and rivals Derby County heavily touted with the attacking wide player.

Wildschut is expected to miss the Latics’ FA Cup tie at Manchester United on Sunday afternoon as he is currently sidelined with a hamstring strain picked up in the win at Burton on January 14.

The former Middlesbrough midfielder joined Wigan in last January’s transfer window for a reported £1m and had scored five goals in his last 10 appearances prior to picking up an injury earlier this month.

Neil has missed out on Marvin Zeegelaar and Mitchell Dijks, as he looks to tee up a potential replacement for Robbie Brady, who is expected to tie up a move to Premier League Burnley, with the Scot reiterating on Saturday evening he would only sanction Brady’s departure if he could bring in reinforcements.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich City Rekindle Interest In Ross McCormack

Championship club Norwich City are claimed to have made an enquiry for Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

Aston Villa splashed around £12 million to secure the services of Ross McCormack from Fulham this summer and his arrival was expected to propel the Villans to promotion into the Premier League.

However, it has to be said that McCormack’s transfer to Villa has proven to be an unmitigated disaster and following a public bust-up with manager Steve Bruce, it looks like the Scottish international’s time at Villa Park is all but over.

There has been widespread claims that Villa will be looking to get rid of McCormack during the final few days of the current transfer window and now Norwich City are said to be keen on taking a chance on the 30-year-old.

Norwich were interested in signing McCormack over the summer but they lost out to Villa. Now with McCormack unwanted by Villa, Norwich are set to revisit their interest in acquiring the services of the ex-Leeds United star and there a good chance that the Canaries will be able to get the deal done for the right price.

Brady To Burnley Done Deal???

According to the Irish state broadcaster RTE it is, however it seems they may have jumped the gun slightly having since pulled the story from the website nearly as fast as they added it...

Looks like with the signing of Dijks on loan that has seemingly been completed this evening the move is back on.

According to telegraph.nl Norwich city have reached agreement with Ajax to sign Mitchell Dijks on loan for the second half of the season

Last week the English side had agreed a fee with Ajax to sign Dijks permanently, but after holding talks the left-back decided to reject the move.

At the time his agent said, “The trainer had a good story, but ultimately Mitchell still decided not to opt for Norwich City The feeling should be good hundred percent and it was not. a club like Norwich deserves no ninety percent. ”

However, it appears that Dijks has had a change of heart and has agreed to join Norwich on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old was first choice in Amsterdam at the start of the season but has lost his place recently to Daley Sinkgraven which may be behind his decision to move to England.
