Norwich Accept Pritchard Offer?
Norwich City have accepted an offer for Alex Pritchard from Huddersfield, Vital Norwich understands and the player is now sorting out his own personal terms before moving back to the Premier League.
If you read Vital Norwich, then you will know that I never claim to be in the know but on this occasion, this is what I am hearing.
It seems clear to me that Pritchard was only ever going to be using Norwich as a stepping stone to get where he wanted to go, which was of course the Premier League. He was always going to struggle to get into the Spurs first team and acknowledged that he needed to move away from White Hart Lane to kick start his career again.
The figure of £11m has been bandied around quite a lot over the last 24 hours and I`m not hearing that the fee is any different to that reported.
It`ll be a shame to lose such a talented player but there is no such thing as loyalty and it seems that Alex would rather swap mid-table Championship mediocrity for a potential Premier League relegation battle.
