Norwich City to persist in chase for Football League starlet



Premier League side Norwich City are set to make a return for York City starlet Ben Godfrey, according to The Mirror


The Minstermen have already turned down an offer from the Canaries for the 17-year-old but are set to return with a second bid for the highly-rated midfielder.

Godfrey has made 14 appearances for York this season, scoring once, but has turned down two offers of a professional contract with the North Yorkshire outfit and looks set to leave the club sooner rather than later.

Norwich boss Alex Neil is understood to have watched the youngster in person during the 6-0 loss to Portsmouth at the end of November.

The midfielder, who can also play as a defender, is out of contract at the end of the season and going to a tribunal could net York around £80,000 but the Canaries are hopeful of striking a deal.

Godfrey has also been attracting interest from Norwich’s fellow top-flight side West Brom, Championship sides Hull and Cardiff as well as League One club Barnsley.

York boss Jackie McNamara agreed when asked if the recent interest had turned the player’s head after the 1-1 draw with Mansfield Town on December 28.

York will be desperate to keep the talented prospect as they look to maintain their Football League status. They currently sit bottom in League Two after winning just 3 of their 24 league games.
