Skysports.com understands that Norwich are poised to sign Anthony Pilkington from Huddersfield.

The highly-rated winger, 23, has attracted attention from a number of clubs after an impressive season for the Terriers in 2010/11.

Huddersfield recently confirmed he would be allowed to leave for the right price and Leicester were interested in securing his services.

However, it is Norwich who now look set to win the chase for Pilkington as Paul Lambert strives to strengthen his squad ahead of the new campaign.

A deal is believed to be close and the Canaries will hope to announce his arrival in the near future.

The opportunity to play in the Premier League is thought to have convinced Pilkington to make the move to Carrow Road.
