Morison nears Norwich move

Steve Morison

Premier League newcomers Norwich are set to complete the signing of Millwall striker Steve Morison on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The move will cap a remarkable rise for the 27-year-old, who was playing non-league football just two years ago.

Morison, who scored 17 goals for the Lions last season, told Norwich's official website, www.canaries.co.uk: "Obviously I will be delighted to join Norwich when the deal is completed."

He added: "They're a massive club who have earned the right to play in the Premier League and as a player that's where you want to be."

Boss Paul Lambert, who has already signed Everton forward James Vaughan, said: "We're going to need to be as strong as we can 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."

The Canaries have also been linked with Leeds duo Bradley Johnson and Robert Snodgrass as well as Brighton winger Elliott Bennett.
