Ben Godfrey: Midfielder competing against Newcastle

Norwich City have tabled a bid for highly-rated York City youngster Ben Godfrey, sources have told

Godfrey has come to the attention of a number of clubs higher up the football pyramid after impressing for League Two strugglers York this season.

The midfield dynamo has made 14 appearances in all competitions for York this term and scouts from Premier League and Championship sides have been flocking to Bootham Cresent to cast an eye over Godfrey.

Former Middlesbrough youngster Godfrey has turned down a professional contract at York and is still on a scholarship deal at present.

The likes of West Brom, Cardiff and Hull have all been credited with an interest in Godfrey, but Norwich have made a firm move for the youngster as they look to lure him to Carrow Road.

Norwich are keen to tie up a deal quickly for Godfrey wary of other clubs making a move for the midfielder, but they yet to hear back from York over their offer.

York are battling to keep Godfrey, but with the player keen on a move to Norwich they face just getting a compensation fee for the youngster in January as he is not on professional terms at the club.
