Norwich City have acquired winger Alex Pritchard from Tottenham for a fee of £8million.

The 23-year-old joins the Canaries on a four-year deal and should help bridge the gap left behind when Norwich parted ways with Nathan Redmond earlier in the summer. Pritchard was seemingly hours away from a confirmed move to Brighton and Hove Albion but the Canaries swooped in and offered a deal with improved personal terms for the player. Pritchard had a tough go last season, playing little for Spurs in the first half of the campaign because of injury then getting little playing time when loaned out to West Brom in the second half. This season, he should see plenty of the pitch in the Championship and, if the Canaries can gain promotion, could emerge on fantasy radars a year from now.

Tottenham's Alex Pritchard looked poised to move to Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion but Norwich City have made a late bid in an attempt to land the winger.

Brighton and Hove were on the verge of making Pritchard their record-breaking signing but Norwich have entered the race with £8m bid and what has been reported as "improved personal terms" to entice the 23-year-old to fly with the Canaries. After the sale of Nathan Redmond, Norwich are seeking some attacking help and, after missing out on the chance to land Ross McCormack, are now ready to swoop in and land Pritchard, who was thought to have already had a medical check with Brighton and Hove. A deal looks to get done before the end of the week.

West Ham United have made a £3m bid for Norwich City defender Martin Olsson which has been rejected.

Norwich City were relegated last season and are having a sale of some of their more prominent players. However, with how much players are going for, £3m will not be enough for Olsson. West Ham have the money to spend this summer and may come back with more money for Olsson. If the defender earns a starting spot in the Premier League, he can be a decent late-round pick.

Swansea City are in the market for a winger this summer and, with the announcement that he is not a part of Mauricio Pochettino's plans, Alex Pritchard has emerged on their radar.

Championship clubs Leeds, Newcastle United and Norwich City are also interested in Pritchard, who never had an opportunity to impress under Pochettino in 2015/2016, having been injured for much of the first half of the season and then went on loan to West Brom in January, making only three appearances as a substitute in his time there. He did enjoy a promising loan spell at Brentford the previous season and the 23-year-old attacking player is currently valued at £8m.

Republic of Ireland looked to be in line to upset host France with an early goal by Robbie Brady, but things fell apart for them in the second half and France would score twice unanswered to win, 2-1.

It was the perfect start for Republic of Ireland when Southampton's Shane Long was tripped in the box by Paul Pogba, allowing Brady to step up for a spot kick. He fired it home with great accuracy and pace. Ireland outplayed France in the first half, winning 50/50 challenges and putting pressure on a shaken French defense. Everything changed in the second half though as Ireland began to tire and France would put two past them in quick succession, then were given a man advantage when Shane Duffy was sent off trying to keep another goal from scoring.

Robbie Brady has cemented his status as an Irish folk hero for generations with his winner against Italy to send Ireland on to the knockout stages of Euro 2016.

Brady scored in the 85th minute of what looked for certain to be a nil-nil draw with group winners Italy on the final day of the group stages. The goal sent all of Ireland into a frenzy and ensured that one of the best stories of the tournament - Ireland's fantastic supporters charming the French countryside - will continue into the next round of the tournament at least. Even Roy Keane was smiling. Ireland will face hosts France in the early match on Sunday in Lyon.

Reports are linking Leicester City with a move for Norwich City winger Robbie Brady in the summer transfer window.

The Premier League champions are active in the Premier League rumor mill this summer with an influx of funds from a first-place finish and their Champions League debut in the upcoming season. However, Claudio Ranieri assured the club will not splash the cash on superstars, instead relying on the same scouting and transfer system that got them to the title. Brady would represent a buy in that category with Norwich looking to recoup the £7 million they sent Hull City for the Irishman last summer. Brady made 36 appearances, recording three goals and two assists, while being relegated for the second straight season.

Wes Hoolahan scored the opener for Ireland just after the start of the second half but the Republic couldn't hold on for three points.

"The Irish Messi" Wes Hoolahan put his side up 1-0 in the 48th minute but they couldn't hold the lead. It was a Ciaran Clark own goal from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic cross that ended up leveling the tie. If Clark hadn't intervened, Seb Larsson was just behind him waiting to score for the Swedes. With Italy facing Belgium in the other opening round match, both Ireland and Sweden failed to pick up critical points that they'll need to compete with the heavyweights.

Norwich City has approved the sale of Nathan Redmond, Robbie Brady and Cameron Jerome in order to raise funds.

The Canaries were the latest one-and-done team in the Premier League, the only team this season to suffer the drop after being promoted the previous season. The club has reportedly hired two external services to find a home for the starting trio in the belief that they can profit most from their respective sales. Redmond remains the hottest name on the list this summer with Crystal Palace, Stoke City, West Brom and West Ham all reportedly interested in the 22-year-old. Brady, formerly of Hull City, has also proved his worth in the Premier League, scoring three goals as a left-back and left-winger in 31 Premier League appearances.

Alex Tettey has refused to comment on his future following the Canaries relegation to the Sky Bet Championship, fuelling speculation that the Norwegian may leave Carrow Road during the summer.

Tettey was non-committal when asked his thoughts on next season by Norwegian press agency NTB. "If I want to play in the Premier League than the Championship, it’s something I would keep to myself." The 30-year-old has been side-lined since March after undergoing surgery to repair damaged ankle ligaments and the midfielder is only focussing on his recovery at the moment: "I am in the rehabilitation phase, and hope to be injury-free at the start of June," but Tettey hinted that his body may struggle to cope with the demands of England’s second tier. "The Championship is a frighteningly tough league with many games, and that puts its toll on the body, especially mine."

Norwich City could not muster up a second inspired performance in one week, falling to Everton at Goodison Park in a 3-0 loss.

Norwich City still had something to play for on Wednesday during the club's 4-2 win against Watford, but the Canaries were relegated shortly after with Sunderland's win. Sunday's edition of Norwich looked very much resigned to its fate as the club could only manage two shots on target while giving up two goals in the first half to James McCarthy and Leighton Baines. Kevin Mirallas added a third goal just after half-time that seemed to bury the Canaries in a second-to-last-place finish. To make matters worse, Martin Olsson left in just the 10th minute with a leg injury.

Dieumerci Mbokani led a Norwich scoring explosion against Watford but it was for naught as Sunderland also won and relegated the Canaries.

Troy Deeney opened the scoring in the critical match in the relegation struggle but it was Norwich that came storming back to ultimate record a 4-2 win over Watford. Goals from Nathan Redmond, Mbokani, Cathcart (OG), and Mbokani again did the damage as the Canaries did everything that was in their control. It wasn't enough as Sunderland cruised to a 3-0 victory over Everton that could have been 5 or 6 and relegated the East Anglia side with one week remaining in the campaign.

Norwich City was dealt yet another season-ending injury blow following an injury to midfielder Jonny Howson on Saturday.

The versatile midfielder played in all 36 of the club's league matches, starting in 33, before suffering a knee injury against Manchester United over the weekend. Norwich City manager Alex Neil confirmed that he is set for an extended spell out: "Jonny has had a scan and he's got a grade two ligament strain which means he will be out for six to eight weeks. It's really disappointing for us and for him, because his performance levels over the course of the season have been consistently high." Without Howson, Graham Dorrans will likely start in central midfield while Neil could go more attacking with both Steven Naismith and Wes Hoolahan in the lineup.

Norwich City will have Ryan Bennett as part of its squad to face Watford on Wednesday it what is surely a must-win for the club.

Even if the Canaries prevail against Watford, they could still be relegated by the end of Wednesday night if Sunderland defeat Everton to pull at most four points clear of Norwich with one game left to play. Bennett has been missing for the last two games due to illness, which meant that Russell Martin had to shift down to center-half and Ivo Pinto starting at right-back in the absence of Andre Wisdom and Timm Klose for the remainder of the season. But expect Bennett to start, likely in place of Pinto, for the final two matches.

Jonny Howson is the latest injury concern for Norwich. The Canaries midfielder could miss the clubs’ two remaining Premier League games after suffering a suspected knee ligament injury.

Howson came off second best in a full blooded challenge with Michael Carrick as Norwich were pushing for an equaliser late in the game. The 27-year-old will undergo further tests although initial reports suggest he will join Timm Klose, Andre Wisdom and Alex Tettey in the treatment room for the remainder of the season. Following another defeat, it could prove to be Howson’s last appearance in the Premier League – certainly at Carrow Road - if Norwich fail to win against Watford on Wednesday. Post-match Alex Neil was bemoaning his sides’ bad injury luck: "Obviously when you are one of the smaller teams then missing key players is going to hurt, it makes it doubly difficult, but Timm has missed five games. Alex is the longer term one."
