HUDDERSFIELD Town's Anthony Pilkington is tonight on the verge of sealing a deal with Premiership new boys Norwich City.
He is set to sign for the Norfolk club on a three-year deal, with a further one-year option following the completion of his medical and the move is now just subject to paperwork being completed.
Neither side have disclosed the value of the deal, which is believed to be worth around £3m with add ons - but Town chairman Dean Hoyle said it could be the best in Town's history.
Pilkington, who joined Town in January 2009, last week told the chairman that he wanted to leave the club where he made 107 appearances and netted 25 times.
The player, 23, had been injured since March this year when he broke a leg in a League I game against Rochdale at the Galpharm.
Norwich manager Paul Lambert said he was delighted to welcome the winger to Carrow Road and said he believed Pilkington would be a 'big player' for them.
Pilkington said: "I think it's been in the pipeline for about a week or so now and I'm absolutely delighted to make the move having passed my medical.
"It's great to get down here, I met all the lads today and met the gaffer so yes I'm absolutely delighted. Paul just told me to go and relish playing in the Premier League. He's played at the highest level and he's been a massive part of this club for the two years he has been here.
"The Premier League is the best league in the world. When you're a boy you dream of playing in it one day. It's great to see the club is on the up and we'll be fighting tooth and nail to stay in the Premier League."
