Norwich lead the chase for Posh striker

Peterborough have accepted an offer for prolific striker Craig Mackail-Smith from a Premier League side, rumoured to be newly-promoted Norwich City, according to BBC Sport.

The 27-year old has been in fine form this season as his 35 goals helped Darren Ferguson’s side win promotion to the Championship. The ex-Dagenham and Redbridge forward has scored 99 goals in 210 appearances for the Posh and earned his first cap for Scotland in March despite previously representing the England ‘C’ side.

Norwich first moved for Mackail-Smith earlier in the year but their overtures were rejected. He has since stated his desire to play at the top level and Norwich manager Paul Lambert sees him as an ideal signing, despite having already spent what could rise to £2.5 million on James Vaughan from Everton.

Whilst Norwich are the first club to have a bid accepted, interest in the striker is still high. Everton, Wigan and fellow promotion achievers QPR have all been linked with the player but have yet to table firm bids.
