NOR­WICH are set to sign Scot­land in­ter­na­tional mid­fielder Gra­ham Dor­rans on loan from West Brom af­ter his planned £4m move to Car­row Road col­lapsed on trans­fer dead­line day.

Al­bion had wanted to sign Nor­wich left-back Martin Ols­son in ex­change for Dor­rans only for the swap deal to fall through.

But the Ca­naries still want Dor­rans, 27, and Al­bion will give his loan move the green light once mid­fielder Yous­souf Mu­lumbu has re­turned to the club from the Africa Cup of Na­tions.

Al­bion manager Tony Pulis said:“The deal could be done so long as Mu­lumbu comes back fit – that gives us an­other mid­field player.

“Gra­ham has been bril­liant for Al­bion. He is a re­ally nice lad. He is a good player as well.”

Dor­rans’ prospects were hit by the ar­rival of Scot­land mid­fielder Dar­ren Fletcher from Manch­ester United.
