On August 24th, we covered a report from Norway’s VG which stated Norwich City talks for Mathias Normann had stalled.

The Canaries had made a loan offer the previous week to FC Rostov, and Daniel Farke’s side were willing to pay €2.5m as a loan fee to the Russian club. Norwich were also ready to include an obligation to make his stay permanent for €14m, provided they avoid relegation and Normann plays at least 50 percent of their fixtures.

Rostov wanted the clause to stand regardless of which division Norwich find themselves in next season, although that didn’t please the player because he didn’t fancy being forced into a permanent move to a Championship club.

Now, it would appear all of that has been resolved.

VG return with a fresh story on Sunday morning, and they now say Norwich and Rostov have ‘reached an agreement’ for the transfer. It will be a loan with an obligation buy, although it’s not explained if there’s any clauses which that would be dependent on.
