Norwich City midfielder Adam Phillips has agreed a deal to join Scottish Premiership side Hamilton on a season-long loan deal, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

The 20-year-old is well down the pecking order at Carrow Road and Norwich feel he would benefit by going out on loan and playing regular first-team football next season.

Phillips spent the second half of last season on loan at League Two Cambridge United and made four appearances for the club.

The versatile midfielder joined Norwich last summer after being released by Liverpool and has spent most of his time with the Canaries' Under-23 squad.

Phillips came through the youth ranks at Liverpool spending 10 years at Anfield, but he never broke into the first-team during his time at the club.

The former England Under-17 international featured on the bench for the Norwich first-team squad on a couple of occasions last season, but is yet to make his senior debut.

A number of clubs have expressed an interest in taking Phillips on loan for next season, but Hamilton have moved quickly to agree a deal with Norwich.

Phillips' arrival will come as a major boost to Accies boss Martin Canning as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the new seasons starting this weekend in the League Cup.
