Midfielder set for Madejski move
Huddersfield's Oliver Norwood is set to be the newest addition to the Royals squad, after a deal has been agreed with the Terriers for the midfield.
We are set to play the Yorkshire this evening, but Norwood will not be a part of the squad to play the Royals, as he looks to finalise his move down south. The fee agreed for the former Manchester United midfielder is unknown, but in the media, is believed to be just over £1 million.
Oliver Norwood is happening. Deal all but done, last few remaining details to be tied up #readingfc— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) August 18, 2014
Told it's now very close, but it's not yet 100% done as has been reported elsewhere. Club confident of getting it over the line #readingfc— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) August 18, 2014
Charles Watts essentially confirmed the rumours validity and that a deal could be done soon, so he can play against Forest this Saturday. Norwood has scored 8 goals in 79 appearances for Huddersfield, as well as representing Northern Ireland at international level.
There have been mixed reviews about him from Huddersfield fans, but we will hopefully gain an insight from our friends over at Vital Huddersfield. Adkins has been searching for a CM for a while now, so I imagine our interest in Dean Hammond is now over.
