The assistant coach of Paderborn's Under-21s, Christopher John, is understood to be joining Norwich City, according to reports in Germany.
Revier Sport claims the recent game against FC Gütersloh was John's last as he nears a move to the English league.
Norwich are the destination suggested within the story, and it is a link that makes sense given the 30-year-old's connection to Daniel Farke, the Canaries manager by whom he was signed at SV Lippstadt.
Revier Sport suggests John 'should' take up a video analysis and a co-coaching role at Carrow Road.
Given his background at youth level, however, it could be that John is appointed as Under-23s coach - the position recently vacated by Matt Gill.
Gill, the former Norwich midfielder, quit the Canaries to join Paul Lambert, his old boss in Norfolk, at Ipswich Town in last October.
Mario Vrancic and Dennis Srbeny both played for Paderborn before their moves to Norwich.
