Wolves are to sign their second goalkeeper of the summer with Cambridge United’s Will Norris set to move according to a report from Express & Star journalist Tim Spiers.
Many of Wolves’ plans going into next season were left in ruins when they received the tragic news that usual number one Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Many of their rivals and opposition players sent in tributes as they wished Ikeme better in his fight against this disease and it was a blow for the Wolves squad, both emotionally in losing a dressing room favourite and in terms of losing a key player.
Wolves did move quickly to make sure they had a new number one, signing John Ruddy following his release from Norwich City. But now they are looking to sign a new shot stopper to be Ruddy’s back-up and to make sure he doesn’t feel too comfortable as their regular goalkeeper. And they have found their man as they are now very close to signing Norris from Cambridge.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper came through non-league football after starting his career with Northwood before moving onto the likes of Hatfield Town and Royston Town. He would then sign for Cambridge United in 2012 and was in and out of the first team before establishing himself as their number one. He was even able to show Wolves how good he was by saving a penalty by James Henry at the start last season. But now he looks set to move to the Black Country to fight for the number one spot there.
