Norwich to sign West Brom defender Barnett outright

Norwich City are ready to sign permanently on-loan West Bromwich Albion defender Leon Barnett.

The former Luton centre-half moved to Carrow Road in August and the two clubs have agreed in principle a deal, for an undisclosed fee, which will see Barnett join City on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

He joined Albion from Luton for an initial £2.5million fee in July 2007 and his Hawthorns contract is set to expire in June.

Norwich manager Paul Lambert said: "Leon has been colossal for us and has become a fans' favourite.

"I don't think anyone can say that he hasn't given everything he's got and I'm delighted he will join us permanently."
