Norwich have accepted a six-figure bid from Cardiff for Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall.

Marshall was one of the few players to perform for the Canaries as they slipped to relegation to the third tier of English football for the first time since 1959-60.

The 24-year-old is keen on a move to preserve his international career.

A Norwich statement said: "We can confirm we have agreed a fee with a Championship club for David Marshall, but there is nothing further to add at this stage. When we have anything more to announce, we will announce it."

Cardiff chairman Peter Ridsdale revealed it is the Bluebirds who have made the offer.

After appearing for Scotland B last week, Marshall said: "I want to play at the highest level as quickly as I can. If a club came in, I would be silly to turn it down and stay in a lesser league but the right move has got to come up. Norwich need to be happy to let me go as well, so it's out of my hands a little bit."
