As reported on Vital Norwich four days ago Norwich City have, today, confirmed the signing of Leyton Orient’s highly rated 18 year old striker Tristan Abrahams.
The first we heard about it was when Evening Standard sports writer, Tom Collomosse suggested Norwich were leading the chase for the youngster ahead of Brighton and Crystal Palace.

Well, it appears that Abrahams has chosen the Canaries over the Eagles and the Seagulls in just the same way as Alex Pritchard before him.
However Brighton won’t be too concerned as they themselves have announced the signing of Abrahams team mate Steven Alzate.
Director of football at Orient, Martin Ling said: “In accepting these offers, we have allowed both Steven and Tristan to continue to reach their potential, as well as protecting the Club`s position in the event of the players going on to enjoy future success in their respective careers. These deals are life-changing opportunities for both players and we are proud to have helped develop them to this point.’
Abrahams has been signed on a two-year deal with an option for a third year but has been loaned back to Orient for the season. He is available to play and train with the U23 squad.
We found this video of Abrahams online. It is a little light on the ground but he has got plenty of years ahead of him to fill out a new highlights reel.
Good luck Tristan
