Norwich's McGrandles set for Falkirk move

HITC Sport understands Norwich midfielder is set for return to old club.

Norwich City midfielder Conor McGrandles has agreed a loan move back to former club Falkirk, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

McGrandles came through the ranks at Falkirk and his performances for the Bairns brought him to the attention of a number of clubs south of the border.

Norwich won the race to sign the talented playmaker in the summer of 2014 with McGrandles signing a three-year deal at Carrow Road.

McGrandles made his debut for Norwich in the Boxing Day win over Millwall in 2014, but he has been unable to establish himself in the club's first-team.

McGrandles is highly-regarded at Norwich and the club feel he would be best served by going out on loan to get some valuable first-team action under his belt.

A number of Scottish Premiership clubs have shown an interest in McGrandles, but Falkirk have managed to persuade their former favourite to return to his first club.

Falkirk are keen to boost their squad in this month's transfer window as they look to maintain their bid for promotion to the Scottish Premiership and McGrandles return to the club would come as a massive boost to boss Peter Houston.
