Mumba in Norwich ahead of move
Sunderland midfielder Bali Mumba has been in Norwich ahead of his move to the newly relegated Premier League side.
The England youth international posted a picture of himself on social media that shows him in the city alongside former Arsenal youth winger Matthew Dennis, who is also expected to sign for Daniel Farke’s side.
Sunderland are believed to have accepted a fee of around £350,000 from Norwich for the academy product with the club said to be unwilling to let the 18-year-old run down the one year remaining on his contract.
