Norwich City have agreed a deal for Leyton Orient youngster Tristan Abrahams, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Talks are at an advanced stage between both clubs and a move is set to be confirmed later this week.

Abrahams came to the attention of Norwich after breaking into the Leyton Orient team at the back end of last season.

The 18-year-old, who has come through the ranks at Orient, scored two goals in nine League Two appearances last season, but could not prevent the club from suffering relegation from the EFL to the National League.

Orient have been resigned to losing Abrahams following their relegation with the player keen to continue his development at the highest level possible

A number of clubs have been tracking Abrahams with Premier League duo Brighton and Hove Albion and Crystal Palace being credited with an interest in Abraham, but Norwich have moved quickly to agree a deal to bring the teenager to Carrow Road.

Norwich see Abrahams as one for the future and the forward is expected to link up with Canaries' Under-23s side initially before pushing for a first-team place in Daniel Farke's side.
