DONE DEAL: Norwich snap up Motherwell teen Reece McAlear

Norwich City have snapped up Motherwell teen Reece McAlear.

The Premier League new boys confirmed the deal on Friday and the midfielder will join up with Paul Williams' Under-18s side for the upcoming season.

Scotland youth international McAlear was highly-rated at Motherwell and featured in a number of pre-season friendlies this summer.

The Steelmen offered the 17-year-old an extended deal in a bid to fend off the advances of Norwich .

But the lure of the Premier League was too strong and McAlear is now preparing for life with the Canaries after a fee, reported to be around £250,000 with add-ons, was agreed, says the Daily Record.
