Norwich Suffer Transfer Blow As Second Bid For Player Rejected

Championship side Norwich City will be left frustrated at how they have been forced to settle for a transfer window with little or no activity at all. While they have been scouting for players, they have not quite had the luck with transfer negotiations they have been holding with clubs they wish to do transfer businesses with.

Manager Daniel Farke has already stated that he would love to add some more players to his current crop of stars as they look to maintain their stay at the top of the English Championship table. However, with the January transfer window coming to a close on Monday night, and having failed to land any of his top transfer targets yet, he may have to wait till the summer before he gets his hands on any potential new signing for the Championship side.

One club that have given Norwich troubles in negotiations is Peterborough United. Norwich have seen their bid for Peterborough youngster Flynn Clarke rejected for the second time. While the Canaries are well used to snapping up brilliant talents from lower leagues (examples: Ben Godfrey and James Madison) and giving them a platform to become better players, it seems they will have to look away from Flynn as his club are adamant and insistent they don’t want him to leave.

An initial offer of £300,000 was made by Championship table-toppers Norwich for the 18-year-old star which was immediately rejected. They came back with an improved offer of £700,000 plus other bonuses and add ons, but suffered yet another setback in their hunt for the young talent.

It is not yet known whether Norwich will return with a third bid for Clarke who has featured in ten games for Peterborough in all competitions, but time is surely running out for them.
