Norwich City have signed highly-rated Falkirk midfielder Conor McGrandles for an undisclosed fee.

The exact cost of the transfer hasn't been revealed by either club, but it's thought that the Canaries have paid in excess of £1million to land the 18-year-old.

Norwich made the decision to move for McGrandles following a recommendation from current Norwich assistant manager Gary Holt, who left Falkirk this summer.

The Bairns have described it as a record sale for them, with McGrandles signing a three-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, at Carrow Road.

"It feels brilliant to be here, a dream come true really. I never expected it to happen so quick, but I'm just really delighted to be here.

I know Gary Holt through our time at Falkirk and he was a big factor in me coming here. He told me all about the place and sold it really well."

Meanwhile, Norwich could be set to announce another new signing today with the club thought to be closing in on Club Brugge midfielder Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe.

It's understood that the Belgian has now penned a three-year contract after the two clubs agreed a fee of between €4million and €5million.

That fee would rise again if the Canaries gained promotion to the Premier League.

A 74-year-old former Scout master from King's Lynn has pleaded guilty to abusing young boys.

Barry Warren, of Clifton Road, admitted at Norwich Crown Court, two counts of gross indecency against boys under the age of 13. The offences took place in the early 90s and involved him abusing children he had come into contact with during his role as a Scout master.

Norfolk Police believe there may be other victims who may not have come forward.

"Warren clearly misused his position of trust to take his unassuming victims on trips on the Norfolk Broads and swimming at the weekends. He then used these trips as an opportunity to abuse them.

"We believe there may be other victims who have not been contacted as part of this investigation. Every allegation of abuse is fully investigated by Norfolk Police, with specialist officers guiding victims through the process. Support and advice is available from a range of agencies and police work closely with partners to work towards the successful prosecution of offenders.”

– DC Debbie Payne, Child Abuse Investigation Unit

Warren has been released on bail to be sentenced next month.
