York starlet Ben Godfrey in Norwich medical

Norwich City

HITC Sport understands Norwich are poised to finally land the York City starlet.

Norwich City are set to sign York City midfielder Ben Godfrey, with the player currently undergoing a medical at Carrow Road, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Norwich have been chasing the highly-rated teenager for several weeks and saw their opening bid for Godfrey rejected last month.

Championship hopefuls Derby also made a move for Godfrey as they looked to beat Norwich to the midfielder's signature.

The Canaries made an improved offer for Godfrey earlier this month and after weeks of haggling a deal has now been agreed between both clubs.

York have reluctantly agreed to let Godfrey move on after the 17-year-old turned down the offer of a professional contract at Bootham Cresent.

League Two strugglers faced just getting a compensation fee for the youngster in January as he is not on professional terms at the club and now they have agreed a figure with Norwich to allow Godfrey to move to the Premier League.

Godfrey is seen as one for the future at Norwich and the midfielder is unlikely to figure in Alex Neil's first-team squad with the club battling to stay up in the Premier League.
