Norwich close to Ayala swoop

Liverpool defender Daniel Ayala is close to sealing a reported £800,000 move to Norwich City, with Paul Lambert revealing the youngster was undergoing a medical with the Premier League new boys on Friday afternoon.

Norwich boss Lambert has already brought in seven summer signings to bolster his squad, and he has now confirmed a move for Spanish centre-back Ayala is on the cards.

The 20-year-old arrived at Anfield from Sevilla in 2007, but has found first-team opportunities limited and played on loan at Hull and Derby last season.

The Norwich manager told BBC Radio Norfolk: "He's here at the minute, he's talking, and I think he's having a medical which we'll find out later on if everything's okay.

"If that goes through it'll be next week before I see him. I just think you've got to have a lot of cover throughout the coming games and a long hard season.

"He's a young player and obviously played against us for Hull and Derby and I thought he was strong and aerial as well, he was somebody we thought could benefit the football club.''
