Morison to sign three-year deal with Norwich City

Millwall striker Steve Morison is reported to have agreed personal terms and passed a medical with Norwich City.The 27-year-old Wales international underwent a medical on Friday and has agreed a three-year deal at Carrow Road.The Lions confirmed on Thursday afternoon that they had accepted an increased bid – City’s fourth and reportedly over the £2m mark – and that they had granted permission for Morison to talk to the Canaries.Morison told the club’s official website: “Obviously I will be delighted to join Norwich when the deal is completed. They’re a massive club who have earned the right to play in the Premier League and obviously as a player that’s where you want to be.“I had to work hard when I was playing non-league football but since then after joining Millwall it’s been a rapid rise for me and now I’ve got the chance to play in the Premier League, to enjoy every minute of it and hopefully do everything we can to try to stay there.“I know Andrew Crofts and Owain Tudur Jones from playing with them for Wales and I played against Russell Martin when he played against us for Scotland the other day. I know Zak from Millwall of course and Elliott Ward through his brother Darren, so I know a few of them already which is good.”Norwich City manager Paul Lambert commented: “For us in that league we’re going to need to be as strong as we can be in every department. Steve is a natural goalscorer who will significantly add to what is already a very competitive striking department. That is what we will need in the Premier League.”
