Norwich City have agreed a deal worth just over £8m with Werder Bremen for striker Josh Sargent.

Arrangements are being made for the 21-year-old to fly to England to undergo a medical, although that might not happen until Monday.

Sargent will not be in Bremen's squad for their German Cup clash with VfL Osnabruck on Saturday, having been excused from training on Friday as well.

Werder's sporting director Frank Baumann said of Sargent: "We are about to finalise a transfer with a foreign club. Because of this, Josh told us that he wasn't in the right frame of mind to play on Saturday. As a result, we let him go home from training."

Sargent was one of few players to come out of Bremen's 2020-21 season, one which ended in relegation, with any credit.

He scored seven goals in all competitions and also hit the target twice on the opening day of the 2. Bundesliga season last weekend against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
