Norwich City are closing in on a deal for Sporting Lisbon left back, Marvin Zeegelaar according to Portuguese paper, A Bola
He is Dutch and 26 years old – hold on, Dutch and playing for Sporting Lisbon?!
Haven’t we been here before?
Anyway, moving on, Zeegelaar is reportedly ready to move to England and has not been involved for Sporting lately due to the interest from England. A Bola report that this deal is definitely happening, while other papers have it a bit more muddled than that, with Crystal Palace also supposedly offering him a move out of Lisbon.
The fee is reported to be an initial ?3.5m that could rise to ?5m with add ons. He only signed for Sporting in January 2016 for a reported ?500k and has played 29 times for them. He also had a Dutch national team call up last November but is yet to make his international debut.
A Bola report that Zeegelaar met with Norwich officials yesterday and agreed to join the Canaries.
