Ivo Pinto: Signed for Norwich

Norwich City are closing in on a £2.2million deal for Dinamo Zagreb full-back Ivo Pinto, according to the Daily Mail.

The Portugal defender turns 26 on Thursday and will be hoping to finalise the deal by then, with Norwich waiting on international clearance on the paperwork.

Pinto has featured in the Champions League for Zagreb this season, and faced Arsenal earlier in the campaign.

Canaries boss Alex Neil is looking to add to his squad in the January transfer window in a bid to avoid relegation back to the Championship.

Norwich are currently 15th in the Premier League after picking up 10 points from their last five games, including an historic 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Neil’s side come up against Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday, and then travel to the Britannia to face Mark Hughes’s in-form Stoke City.
