Ricky van Wolfswinkel: Heading to Norwich in July

Norwich have agreed to sign Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel for an undisclosed fee on a four-year contract from July 1.

The 24-year-old has scored 82 goals in 188 appearances for Vitesse Arnhem, FC Utrecht and Sporting and has won one senior cap for Holland.

Norwich manager Chris Hughton told the club website: "Ricky's profile is a perfect fit for us - he's young, ambitious and a proven goalscorer.

"He has an excellent goalscoring pedigree and he's a young man very keen to continue his personal progression and to play in England. He's already an exciting talent but he still has more development as a player ahead of him.

"I'm delighted we've been able to agree a deal with Sporting Lisbon and with Ricky and we look forward to welcoming him to the squad in July, once all of the paperwork gets sorted out."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
