Norwich striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel is close to a return to Sporting Lisbon in a deal worth £3.8 million…
After the disappointing news that winger Robbie Brady will not be arriving (yet, anyway) because Hull are asking for too much money. Norwich fans will be cheered by the news that their misfiring front man Ricky van Wolfswinkel is going. Reports in Holland suggest he is on the brink of rejoining Sporting Lisbon for a fee in the region on £3.8 million. His record of 54 goals in 119 matches persuaded Norwich to pay a club record £8.5m in 2013, with fans hoping the Dutch International would be another van Basten or a van Nistelrooy. But after a goal scoring debut, he quickly looked more like a van driver – failing to hit the net in his following 24 appearances. He spent last season on loan at St-Etienne, scoring five times (in 24 matches) but not enough to earn a permanent deal. Or another stab at the PL with Norwich. Jul 6 - 12:55 PM
