Transfer Rumour: Norwich Interested In Young Man City Winger Patrick Roberts

Norwich City, Aston Villa and Newcastle are all said to be interested in signing Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts, according to The Scotsman.

The 19 year old signed for the Sky Blues from Fulham last summer in a deal reported to be worth £12m. He made just three appearances for the first team before joining Celtic last January on an 18 month loan deal.

Roberts then scored 7 goals in 14 appearances for The Hoops as they walked to the SPL title, and is due to report back to Celtic for pre season training next month under the guidance of Brendon Rodgers, who was named as the new Celtic Park boss, last month.

An 18 month loan deal is not the norm, but Man City are believed to have a break clause and may want to cash in to help ensure complaince with Financial Fair Play requirements
