Former Canaries Set To Reunite With Cameron Jerome Joining Russell Martin's MK Dons

Former Derby, Norwich, Birmingham, Stoke and Cardiff striker Cameron Jerome looks to be set to return to playing in England.

The 34-year-old front man is currently a free agent after his contract expired at Turkish club Goztepe.

Football Insider reports that League One side MK Dons are understood to be on the verge of completing the signing Jerome on a free transfer.

The player is said to have agreed terms on a one-year deal with the Milton Keynes outfit, managed by former Norwich defender and team mate Russell Martin.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich linked to young Man City defender Joel Latibeaudiere

Norwich and Reading are both reported to be holding negotiations with Manchester City in an attempt to sign Joel Latibeaudiere before the end of this transfer window.

The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.

Latibeaudiere has represented England at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level, winning 23 caps.

The Premier League player is highly talented and he has a big future ahead of himself.

But, he is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by City this autumn and the list of suitors in the England Under-20 international continues to grow.

According to the report, “Manchester City defender Joel Latibeaudiere is set to cut ties with the club. The Manchester Evening News says Latibeaudiere is in talks with Norwich and Reading as he appears to be nearing an exit from City. Latibeaudiere, 20, will leave the Etihad before the domestic transfer deadline for EFL clubs, with a permanent deal expected to be completed early next week. Latibeaudiere spent last season on loan at FC Twente.”

Transfer Rumour: Leeds 'Cool' Interest In Midfielder Todd Cantwell

It is understood that Leeds United are now unlikely to sign Norwich City attacker Todd Cantwell before the close of the transfer window, according to latest reports.

Cantwell made his way through the Norwich City academy, having originally joined the club at U10-level.

He broke into the Canaries first team during the 2018/19 Championship season. His first goal for the club came in December 2018 in a 3-1 victory over Rotherham United.

The attacker soon became a regular for Norwich in the second half of the 2018/29 season. He made 24 league appearances as Daniel Farke’s side were promoted to the Premier League.

He carried on this momentum heading into the 2019/20 Premier League season. Norwich were relegated, but Cantwell was one of their most consistent performers all season.

The winger played in all-but-one of their Premier League games, as he scored six and assisted two for the relegated outfit.

Cantwell has been linked heavily with a top-flight return with Leeds United of late. But the two clubs are yet to reach an agreement, with the domestic window closing on October 16.

Speaking on The Phil Hay Show, The Atheltic journalist revealed that Leeds United are not desperate to sign Cantwell:

“They’ve been cool on Cantwell since the rumours came to light on the Sunday of the Sheffield United game.

“My understanding is that it’s been Cantwell’s camp and his agent who’ve been pushing this as much as Leeds have. I think that’s where a lot of the information’s coming from.

Transfer Rumour: Turkish champions Basaksehir enquire about Hernandez

Reports are coming out in the media on Sunday afternoon that Turkish champions Istanbul Basaksehir have asked Norwich City about the availability of Onel Hernandez, which would offer the winger the opportunity of playing Champions League football.

The speedy 27-year-old has started all four of City’s matches in the Championship so far this season and has made 89 appearances in total since signing from German side Eintracht Braunschweig in January 2018, scoring 11 goals and assisting 14.

After a crucial part in the Championship title triumph of 2018-19, Hernandez missed two chunks of the Canaries’ unsuccessful campaign in the Premier League with knee injuries, scoring once and assisting twice.

Now The Sun’s transfer guru Alan Nixon has claimed that Basaksehir have enquired about the Cuba-born former Germany Under-18 international, ahead of the European transfer window closing at 11pm on Monday.

Hernandez played 57 minutes of Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Derby, with his shot winning a penalty, which was missed by Teemu Pukki. He is under contract at City until 2023, after signing a new deal following promotion in 2019.

Head coach Daniel Farke spoke about the attacker’s importance ahead of the new season, admitting that sometimes his final ball is lacking, but saying: “With his power and ability he is so important. Crucial. It says a lot for what we missed when he was injured for so much of the season.”

Transfer News: Ben Godfrey Completes Medical Ahead Of £25m Move To Everton

Ben Godfrey's move to Everton is edging closer after the Norwich defender completed his medical ahead of a £25m switch to Goodison Park, according to reports coming from Sky Sports.

Everton's latest bid, which is understood to be worth in the region of £25million plus add-ons which could see the deal rise to £30m, was accepted by the Canaries for their star defender earlier this week.

Norwich had initially rejected Everton's offer of £20m plus £6m in add-ons but the Goodison Park club countered quickly to reach an agreement on one of the hottest young prosects in defense for England.

And now Sky Sports report that Ben Godfrey has passed his medical and should be announced as an Everton player shortly.

The fee is a record received by Norwich, eclipsing the previous mark of £20m, plus £4m in add-ons, from Leicester City for James Maddison in 2018.

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has been eager to increase his options in defence following injuries to Mason Holgate and Jarrad Branthwaite.

He had also been discussing a loan for Chelsea's Fikayo Tomori but Godfrey is seen as technically skilful player with big potential.

Transfer Rumour: Leeds "Back In" For Cantwell In Race Against Deadline

Leeds United already have three big transfers in the bag with Roberto Moreno, Robin Koch and Diego Llorente at the club. A similar big-money move for Bayern Munich’s Michael Cuisance fell through after a failed medical. The Whites are said to be looking at alternatives and some, such as Football Insider, state that the Whites have returned to previous interest in Todd Cantwell.

Now Football Insider’s Veysey, referencing a ‘recruitment source’ writes that Leeds United are “back in” for youngster Cantwell as they look to beat the closing of Monday’s transfer window deadline.

Leeds have already entered a bid of £15m, supposedly. Their return comes with Veysey stating that the Canaries value academy product Cantwell in the £15m-£20m bracket. Veysey writes that “discussions are set to continue between the two clubs” as the ticking of the transfer clock hastens towards the current window closing.

Perhaps the biggest sign that this is happening is Norwich’s decision in regard to today’s game against Derby County. The Canaries recalled Emiliano Buendia but there was no recall for Cantwell.

That alone is strange, bearing in mind that Daniel Farke had left both Buendia and Cantwell out last week, citing a lack of focus from them as transfer rumours continue to swirl around the pair. Buendia coming back would seem to indicate a refocus by the Spaniard but Cantwell was still missing.
