Klose in Norwich medical

Norwich City

HITC Sport understands Wolfsburg defender Timm Klose has undergone a medical at Norwich.

Norwich City are closing in on the signing of Switzerland international Timm Klose with the player undergoing a medical on Sunday.

Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs has confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Norwich for Klose and that the player has been given permission to hold talks with the Premier League side.

Klose has found himself down the pecking order at Wolfsburg this season, making just eight appearances all season and Wolfsburg are ready to let him move on

HITC Sport understands Klose has flown into the UK to hold talks and undergo the first part of his medical at Carrow Road.

Norwich boss Alex Neil has identfied Klose as one of his top targets during this month's transfer window as he looks to shore up his side's defence.

Neil is desperate to add to his side's defensive options with Norwich having one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League.

Norwich find themselves just four points and two places above the relegation drop zone and Neil believes they need someone like Klose to help them steer clear of safety at the wrong end of the table.
