The Canaries and Everton have agreed to a deal worth around $12 million to move the Scottish international to Carrow Road in January.

Naismith has started just four matches for Everton this season and has scored three goals, all of which came in a hat-trick performance against Chelsea.

Norwich City tried to secure a deal for Naismith over the summer, but Roberto Martinez was hesitant to move one of his more experienced attackers. However, with the good form of Arouna Kone and Gerard Deulofeu, Naismith has had a hard time getting off the bench.

The Canaries currently sit 15th on the table, just three points clear of the relegation zone. Manager Alex Neil has been keen to sign a striker to help Norwich’s survival hopes, as the club’s leading scorer Nathan Redmond has just four goals on the year.
