£10m Norwich City departure edging closer with medical planned

Published

on

According to a transfer report in the Yorkshire Post, Alex Pritchard is set for a medical at Huddersfield Town today, ahead of his £10m move from Norwich City.

Norwich have held off selling Pritchard, but with the attacking midfielder having just 18 months left on his deal at Carrow Road, £10m has landed his signature.

The Canaries will recoup a guaranteed £10m from Pritchard’s sale, with potential add-ons to follow from Huddersfield, who currently sit 11th in the Premier League table.

Whilst Huddersfield are boosting their chance of Premier League survival, Norwich are facing the possibility of the second-half of the season without Pritchard, which is dealing the Canaries a huge blow in their quest to save their campaign.

Daniel Farke’s side currently sit 13th in the Championship table, nine points adrift of the play-off zone.

So far this season, Pritchard, 24, has featured on just eight occasions, having missed the opening months of the season through injury.

The forward has featured in Norwich’s last eight Championship fixtures, scoring two goals and registering one assist, whilst also featuring in the Canaries’ goalless draw with Chelsea last Saturday in the third-round of the FA Cup.

The Verdict

Losing Pritchard is a huge blow for Norwich, and one that could spell the end of their play-off push.

Pritchard is amongst the best creative players in the league, and losing him will hurt Farke’s side.

Norwich need to reinvest the money they receive from Pritchard’s sale, with his departure sure to leave a gaping hole to fill.
