Kyle Lafferty is seen as set to complete move to Norwich City this week, after Palermo opted against signing him outright.
The Northern Ireland international was a member of the Rosanero outfit that successfully won promotion back to Serie A last season at the first time of asking.
However, on from reports that budget will be prioritised elsewhere in the market, it is understood that Palermo have passed up their purchase option to sign the forward outright from parent club Sion.
Lafferty, who netted 11 times for the Sicilians last term, is seen as having flown out to England ahead of expected medical tests with Norwich City.
Subject to those being completed, the player is expected to finalises a move to the Championship outfit.
