  Pritchard to have Huddersfield medical on Thursday Alex Pritchard is set to undergo a medical at Huddersfield after Norwich accepted a £11m bid for the midfielder. According to Telegraph journalist John Percy, Norwich and Huddersfield have agreed a £11m fee for Pritchard, who will complete the medical formalities this week. Twitter: Alex Pritchard will have a medical at Huddersfield tomorrow. £11m deal agreed with Norwich tonight #htafc #ncfc (@JPercyTelegraph) Norwich rejected a £5m offer from Huddersfield earlier this week, but have now conceded defeat in their efforts to keep him. Pritchard has one goal and two assists for Norwich in the Championship this season, though he only returned to action in December. The midfielder was nursing an injury for the first few months of the season, having picked up a knock in pre-season. Norwich signed Pritchard in the summer of 2016 from Tottenham for a fee in the region of £8.5m. This deal represents a marginal profit on the 24-year-old.

The 24-year-old becomes David Wagner' s second signing of the January transfer window as he moves up from the Championship.

Huddersfield Town have completed the capture of attacking midfielder Alex Pritchard from Norwich City for a reported fee of £14 million.

The 24-year-old had been the subject of interest from Huddersfield for a couple of weeks, with David Wagner seemingly admitting defeat at the start of the month as he rued the cost of English players.

But Wagner has now successfully bolstered his attacking ranks, with Pritchard - who joined Norwich from Tottenham in August 2016 - offering flair and versatility.

The former England Under-21 international is comfortable playing through the middle or on either flank and has notable ability on the ball.
