King's Lynn Town winger Simon Power is expected to complete a move to League Two Harrogate Town in the next 24 hours.

Power, who was on a season-long loan with the Linnets from Norwich City, has been offered a chance to play in the Football League by former Linnets defender Simon Weaver.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, whose contract at Carrow Road was due to expire at the end of the current campaign, is believed to have severed his links with the Canaries.

Power's ultimate ambition is two play for the for Ireland senior team within two years and a move into the Football League will go a long way in helping him achieve that.

It is believed that Lynn did everything they could to try and keep Power, who has attracted the interest of a couple of Championship clubs, at The Walks.

Beginning his player career with Cabinteely and then University College Dublin he joined the Canaries in January 2018 on an 18-month contract which was extended to three years in January 2020.

He spent the second half of the 2018-19 season on loan to Dutch club FC Dordrecht in the Eerste Divisie making ten appearances (two starts) and then involved in all five of Ireland’s Under 21 games at the Toulon Tournament as they progressed to the semi- finals before falling to Brazil.

Power scored four goals in 18 appearances for Lynn and started eight games for Ian Culverhouse's side this season, including the 1-0 win away to League Two side Port Vale in the FA Cup first round.

Harrogate currently 18th in League Two and five points clear of the relegation zone.

As well as linking up with ex-Lynn defender Weaver, who scored three goals in 22 games for Lynn in the 2008/09 season, Power's move would also see him join former Linnets midfielder George Thomson at the EnviroVent Stadium.
