Norwich boss Nigel Worthington has had a bid for striker Dean Ashton accepted by Crewe.
The Canaries have been tracking the free-scoring centre forward for some time, but Worthington appeared to admit defeat earlier in the week when
hinting the forward was out of their reach.
Worthington suggested that Spurs had entered the race for Ashton, but Tottenham revealed that their interest ended in the summer.
With Norwich seemingly the only bidders for Ashton, Crewe have accepted their proposal and The Canaries will now be free to talk to the 21-year-old.
