The day has started with one deal looking increasingly likely to happen.
Lucciano Becchio was seen in Norwich at the ground yesterday by several people (including the man in front of me at the Fish & Chip van outside the ground last night) and it seems Steve Morison is going the other way as a replacement.
After the match in his post match interview on Radio Norfolk, Chris Hughton admitted this deal was ongoing and he was hopeful it would be happening.
10.30 Sky Sports report that City have made a fourth bid for Celtic’s Gary Hooper.
Let’s hope we can pay what they want.
