Norwich City are to complete the signing of Sergi Canos from Liverpool for a fee of £2.5 million, according to the Independent.

The signing will come just under three weeks after Norwich sold Nathan Redmond to Premier League outfit Southampton, for a fee thought to be in the reign of £11m. The signing of Canos is expected to be a direct replacement for Redmond, for a snippet of the price.

England U21 Redmond endured an up-and-down season, where he was criticised for his inconsistency, and he leaves Carrow Road following his second Premier League relegation with the club in three years.

As for Canos, the former Barcelona prospect will pen a four-year deal, with an option for a fifth year, at the Canaries.

It is thought Norwich beat off competition from fellow Championship clubs Bristol City, Brentford, and Fulham, to secure the Spaniard’s signature.

Canos, who spent last season on loan at Brentford, featured heavily as the Bees fought, but narrowly missed out on, the play-off places.

He appeared 38 times in the league last season, with 20 appearances coming from the bench, where he scored seven times, assisting on five occasions.

Brentford boss, Dean Smith, usually utilised Canos as an attacking right midfielder, although he was also played as a regular wide midfielder and occasionally on the left side.

Previous to his successful loan spell last season, Canos attracted lots of attention as a youngster in Spain. Whilst at Nules, La Liga trio Atletico Madrid, Valencia, and Villarreal were all interested in bringing him to their youth setups, but he instead opted for Barcelona.

After three years with Barcelona, Canos made a move to Liverpool at 16. For the remainder of the 2013/14 season, Canos played for Liverpool’s U18 side, before moving up to their U21’s the following season.

In May, Canos made his debut for Liverpool's first team, where he came off the bench in a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Canos will join a Norwich City side, led by Scotsman Alex Neil, who look for their second consecutive promotion to the Premier League following their play-off final triumph at the end of the 2014/15 season.
