Norwich manager Paul Lambert expects midfielder Jonny Howson to sign for the club on Friday.
Howson was undergoing a medical at Norwich and finalising personal terms on Friday morning and Lambert did not foresee any last-minute hitches with the capture of the Leeds captain, who has been sidelined with a knee injury since last month.
Lambert said: "You never quite know until someone signs but I'm pretty sure it's nearly there. We know the extent of the injury and there are no worries about it."
