Norwich City are close to signing Nigerian right back, Tyronne Ebuehi says the Press Association`s Nick Mashiter.
Nick has tweeted this morning (@nickmashiter) “Norwich are close to signing Nigeria international right-back Tyronne Ebuehi from Den Haag. He was at Carrow Road for the Chelsea game #ncfc.”
This is an update on a story that I reported last Thursday on Vital Norwich
The original source was a Dutch journalist, Jim van der Deijl who tweeted that the player was staying in a Norwich hotel room and it looks like that was spot on.
His contract is up at Den Haag in the summer, although he has had a contract extension offer from his current club.
The 22 year old has recently become a full Nigerian International which makes it sound as though he`s a decent player. With his contract up in the summer, you assume that he will have been bought at a snip, although Voetbal International report this could well be a deal for next summer when the lad will be a free agent.
If we`re signing a new right back, I wonder if Russell Martin is about to move on?
