Steven Naismith edges closer to Carrow Road switch

Out-of-favour Everton striker on verge of £8million move

STEVEN NAISMITH should complete his move from Everton to Norwich today.

The Scottish striker is currently having a medical at Carrow Road and is set to complete an £8million switch.

Naismith, 29, joined the Toffees on a free from Rangers in July 2012.

But he has fallen down the Goodison pecking order and made only four league starts this season.

The Canaries tried to land him last summer, only for Naismith to opt to stay put on Merseyside.

Yet when Everton boss Roberto Martinez told him he could go, it completed his fall from grace.

Assuming there are no last-minute snags, Naismith will be in line to make his Norwich debut against Liverpool at Carrow Road on Saturday.
