Report: Sebastian Haller arrives at Carrow Road and rejects £6.5m move

The French Under-21 international has decided he wants to play European football.

This week it was reported that Norwich City were on the brink of signing Sebastian Haller from FC Utrecht. The French under-21 international was reported by the Daily Mail to be on the verge of completing a £6.5 million move from the Dutch side - with Norwich beating off competition from Aston Villa and Sunderland to sign the player.

It looked like being a great move with Haller in top form - scoring 11 goals in 17 Eredivisie games so ar this season.

However the deal has fallen through, according to the Daily Mail.

They report that the 21-year-old arrived at Carrow Road on Thursday and had a change of heart.

He was not pleased with the deal on offer and also decided he wanted to play in Europe - leaving Norwich in the lurch.

This will come as a big blow for manager Alex Neil as he looks for a player to score the goals that might keep Norwich in the Premier League this season.

Haller was supposed to be that player but it seems that he is not heading to Norfolk.
