West Ham have accepted a bid from Norwich City for Jordan Hugill and granted him permission to finalise a move, Football Insider has learned.
The striker has begun a medical in Norfolk and is set to sign a long-term contract today before linking up with his new club at their Germany pre-season training base.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Norwich have upped their offer towards West Ham’s £5m asking price to get the deal agreed,
Football Insider broke the news last week that the two clubs were in talks over a deal for the 28-year-old.
Norwich initially offered a lowball £2m but subsequently increased their bid as West Ham threatened to pull out of talks unless their asking price was met.
Hugill will imminently become the second senior forward to be sold by the Hammers this summer following Albian Ajeti’s transfer to Celtic.
