Norwich City are reportedly closing in on the appointment of Stuart Webber as their new sporting director.

It's believed the 33-year-old has agreed to make the move to Carrow Road from Championship rivals Huddersfield Town, subject to compensation being settled between the two clubs.

Webber has helped transform Huddersfield's fortunes since joining in 2015, and played a big role in bringing manager David Wagner to Yorkshire.

It's understood that an announcement could be made within the next couple of days, at which point Norwich's attention will turn towards finding a new Head Coach to replace Alex Neil.

Norwich City are reportedly hoping to appoint Huddersfield Town's Head of Football Operations Stuart Webber as their new Sporting Director.

The Canaries announced a revamp of their management structure over the weekend, following the resignations of two Chief Executives in the space of just six months.

Press Association Sport understands that 33-year-old Webber is the man the Norwich board want to take on the newly created role following the Terriers' hugely impressive campaign in The Championship this season.

Webber, who previously worked as director of recruitment at Liverpool, was instrumental in bringing manager David Wagner to Yorkshire and has overseen a number of quality signings from both the German Leagues and the domestic market.

If Webber does move to Carrow Road, one of his first duties would be to help choose a new Head Coach to work alongside.
