Norwich City are looking for a quick deal to sign Nottingham Forest midfielder, Henri Lansbury according to The Sun
Norwich fans will fondly remember Lansbury as one of the players that helped Paul Lambert’s side to promotion. At the time, Lansbury was an Arsenal youngster and was loaned in by Lambert, making his debut in the famous 4-1 derby win over Ipswich Town and provided an assist for Grant Holt’s second goal of the hat trick he scored that day.
Forest are currently in turmoil after the failed, drawn out takeover by John Jay Moores and an American consortium with Fawaz Al-Hasawi now back in full control at the City Ground.
Aston Villa seemed inpole position to sign Lansbury last week but those negotiations have dragged on and Norwich now believe they can take advantage of the situation and strike a quick deal for the 26 year old, who is out of contract in the summer, The Sun report.
With the Canaries current lack of midfield depth, this would be a decent signing. The lad has 145 appearances for Forest and he’s scored 32 goals. The paper talk suggests that he’s available for around £3m, which in the current climate sounds like a bargain.
Let’s get it done.
