Norwich are set to sign Manchester City striker Ched Evans on loan until January.
The Canaries are putting the finishing touches to the deal, which would see the 18-year-old stay at Carrow Road until New Year's Day.
The Wales Under 21 international, who has made just one senior appearance for City, is expected to become Glenn Roeder's fourth signing later this week.
He is hoping his time with Norwich will help him break into Sven Goran Eriksson's side on his return to Eastlands.
"It's a good opportunity to play in the Championship and play a good level of football," Evans told Norwich's official website.
"It's a great challenge. I've been looking at the games and there haven't been many goals, so I'm looking forward to coming, hopefully scoring some goals and getting them off the bottom.
"If I can go out on loan and do well then hopefully I can break into Man City's first team.
"If I do well at Norwich it gives me every chance."
