Archant

Coveted Aberdeen keeper Archie Mair is being tracked by Norwich City.

Football Insider reporter Pete O'Rourke claims the Dons' teenage prospect has recently visited Carrow Road on a fact-finding mission, with Mair reportedly out of contract this summer and weighing up his next career move.

The 18-year-old is yet to make his first team league debut for Aberdeen but has featured twice in the Scottish League Challenge Cup.

The Canaries have placed a huge importance on developing young talent in their academy system as they look to unearth more gems such as Jamal Lewis, Ben Godfrey, Todd Cantwell and Max Aarons.

LIKELIHOOD

Given Mair's pedigree at various Scottish international age group levels hardly surprising City would be aware of the teenage keeper.

Should he decide to move on from Aberdeen this summer there appear few better pathways at the top end of the English game right now for talented prospects to be polished and nurtured, than Norwich's development set-up.
