Norwich City have agreed a fee with Tottenham for Gary Doherty.
Norwich City have agreed a fee with Tottenham for versatile defender Gary Doherty.
The exact sum is undisclosed but Canaries boss Nigel Worthington is hoping to wrap up another experienced arrival at Carrow Road as City look to consolidate their Premiership status this term.
Doherty is in the Republic of Ireland team to face Bulgaria in a friendly on Wednesday night and is also capable of playing as an old-fashioned centre forward.
The former Luton Town man is due to have a medical on Thursday and is likely to put pen-to-paper on a contract in East Anglia in time to make his debut in City's daunting fixture at Old Trafford against Manchester United on Saturday.
Although coming on as a substitute in Spurs' opening day draw with Liverpool, the 24-year-old was unlikely to figure regularly under Jacques Santini this season so the prospect of regular first team football should convince him to agree to the move.
