Is it possible to cast spells when in close combat and if so what spells can be cast ?

You can cast hexes, augments, and vortexes while in combat.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
okay thanks but under what category does for example little and big Waagh magic
spells go ?
Are there any FAQ that clarify this ?
The FAQ on GW´s site doesn't mention spell types.
Well by using common sense no magic missile type of spells could be used in close combat.
But spells like Foot of Gork, Hand of Gork, Gork Fix and Mork wants Ya in the little Waagh magic should be ok to cast while in cc ?
For orcs they can cast every spell that isn't a magic missle.
Looking at the BRB, you can cast spells as long as you are not fleeing or off the battlefield (like in ambush).
Otherwise, the only restrictions are what applies to the five types (which you don't have for an army book lore) and the ones listed under Choosing a Target in the magic section. So you can't cast into combat unless it's explicit in your description, must be in range, target in forward arc, don't need LoS.
