YORK City midfielder Ben Godfrey is set to sign a two-and-a-half-year deal with Premier League Norwich City today.

Godfrey, who turns 18 tomorrow, will become a Canaries player subject to passing a medical this afternoon with the two clubs agreeing on a six-figure transfer fee.

City had originally rejected three bids from the Norfolk outfit with the last believed to be a £150,000 offer, including the loan of a Norwich player until the end of this season and clauses that could take the overall package to beyond £1million.

But the top-flight strugglers have now come back with an undiscolsed valuation that satisfies City chief Jackie McNamara and the Bootham Crescent board.

On the transfer, McNamara said: "Everything has been agreed and sorted now and, while we wanted to keep Ben, his mind was made up and we wish him all the best with the next step of his career."

Having made his first-team debut in August, Godfrey has scored one goal in 15 appearances for the Minstermen, with eight of those outings coming from the bench.

He was offered two professional contracts at Bootham Crescent but, having not signed them, the club would have been subject to a tribunal to settle any transfer fee if an agreement could not have been reached.

Godfrey has also attracted interest from Middlesbrough, West Brom, Cardiff, Hull City and Barnsley this season.
