West Ham are ready to accept a bargain basement price for Matt Jarvis either in January or next summer.
Currently injured, the on loan player is set to return in early December after sustaining a knee problem in the last match against Manchester City.
He was given an extended run-out in the pre season Europa Cup campaign in the hope that a club would come in but it was a tight call.
The Canaries made their interest known at the last minute and now the Hammers are hoping they will clinch a deal but are ready for others to come in given that he has been impressive during his start to the season at Carrow Road.
ClaretandHugh was told by a top insider: “Norwich came in at 4 pm on deadline day and the deal was completed by 5,30 with his wages covered.
“The idea was that he got a shop window this season and that we can sell him – if necessary at a knock down price next summer.
“It’s possible something could happen in January but far more likely we will see something take place in the summer.”
