Norwich City midfielder eyed by trio of clubs


Norwich City midfielder Ben Godfrey is attracting interest from Swansea City, Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion.

The 20-year impressed last season whilst on loan at League 1 side Shrewsbury Town, and now the three clubs in question are all said to be weighing up a bid for the plater, according to The BBC, with a fee of £3 million mooted.

If Swansea do make a move for Godfrey, who will be the first signing for new manager Graham Potter, who was formerly boss of Swedish side Ostersunds.

Godfrey is a versatile player who can also play in defence, and is highly rated at Carrow Road, despite only having made six senior appearances for the club since arriving from non-league York City in January 2016. He is under contract with the East Anglian club until 2021.

Sporting prowess runs in the Godfrey family – his father Alex is a former professional rugby league player.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
