Norwich City left-back Martin Olsson is set to sign for Premier League club Swansea City, according to reports.

Both the Daily Mirror and the Daily Telegraph say that a move is close after a £5 million fee was agreed.

Swedish international Olsson recently signed a new contract at Carrow Road but now appears to be heading for the exit door.

Norwich would be short of options at left-back if Olsson does go, with Robbie Brady also being linked with a move away and youngster Harry Toffolo having recently extended his loan spell at Scunthorpe United.

Cambridge's Derry 'disappointed' by manner of FA Cup exit

Cambridge United manager Shaun Derry admitted he was "disappointed" with his side's second-half performance after were knocked out of the FA Cup by Leeds United last night.

The U's looked on course for an upset when Uche Ikpeazu put them ahead, but Leeds turned the game on its head after the break to seal a 2-1 win and book their place in round four.

You generally look back over 90 minutes of football, and it tells you a story.

Tonight's story was that it was a really good 45 minutes - but that was it.

The second-half was disappointing from our side.

Northampton Town have parted company with manager Rob Page.

The Welshman only took over at Sixfields after leaving Port Vale in the summer, but has now been sacked following a run of eight defeats in 10 League One games.

The Cobblers were also humiliated by non-league Stourbridge in the FA Cup second round recently, which only increased the pressure.

The final straw turned out to be a 5-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers at the weekend.

Chairman Kelvin Thomas admitted that Northampton's recent poor form had made Page's position untenable.

Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.

We are disappointed to make this decision regarding Rob, however following the recent run of results we feel that a change is necessary. Rob has always been extremely professional throughout his time and has only ever wanted the club to be successful.

It was always going to be a very tough challenge following last year and the expectation that created, so we thank him for his efforts and we wish him very well for the future.

– Kelvin Thomas, Northampton Town chairman

Thomas also confirmed that Paul Wilkinson will take charge of the team for the upcoming game against promotion-chasing Scunthorpe United.

League One Peterborough United couldn't produce an FA Cup shock at Premier League leaders Chelsea.

First half goals from Pedro and Michy Batshuayi gave Posh the proverbial mountain to climb at Stamford Bridge, a task which got tougher when Willian made it 3-0 after the break.

Chelsea had John Terry sent off before Tom Nichols gave Posh fans something to cheer by scoring with 20 minutes left.

But Pedro ended any hopes of a dramatic comeback by scoring his second and Chelsea's 4th.

"I've been in football for 56 years and it's the first time I'm going and wanting a draw. I've never wanted a draw. But this one, it would be lovely to get them back at our place."
