Norwich City are close to completing a deal to sign Den Haag’s Tyronne Ebuehi according to a report from Press Association Sport journalist Nick Mashiter.
The Canaries have been a bit disappointing this season as they are stuck in mid-table rather than challenging for promotion like was expected at the start of the season. They are currently 12th in the league but are plotting to change a few things in the squad during the January transfer window so they can make a run at the Sky Bet Championship play-offs in the second half of the season.
And one of the players they are hoping will help them rise up the table is Ebuehi who is close to signing for the club. The 22-year-old defender has already been capped by the Nigerian international team, getting his debut earlier in the year in their 3-0 friendly win over Togo, and has been increasingly getting better while playing for Den Haag in the Eredivisie.
And now he will soon get a chance to play in the Championship, something which may enhance his odds at getting a place in Nigeria’s World Cup squad for this summer’s tournament in Russia. He was in the stands at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening when Norwich were able to force Chelsea to a replay after drawing 0-0 with them and the deal could be done in the next few days. And so the Norfolk based club will have grabbed a player who could make the right-back position his own for the next few years.
