PARTICK Thistle have accepted a bid of around £350,000 from Premier League newcomers Norwich City for Aidan Fitzpatrick.

The 18-year-old winger enjoyed a breakthrough campaign at Firhill last season and after rejecting a previous £300,0000 offer from Norwich, Thistle have now accepted a bid.

CEO Gerry Britton told the club's website: “To be honest, we want to keep Aidan at the Club and had already turned down several bids from Norwich, the only Club to approach us about him.

“However, he and his advisers believe that this latest offer is too good to turn down. Having made it clear there was nothing we could do to change their minds, with great reluctance we agreed to let him speak to them, as we believe he still could have made further progress at Thistle.

“Aidan will now head south for a medical and if that is ok, the deal will be concluded thereafter.”
