City Fitness Boost As Pritchard Ready For First Team Return

Summer signing Alex Pritchard looks set for a return to first-team duty with Norwich City, after a sparkling showing for the Canaries’ under-23s.

The £8million capture from Tottenham set up Carlton Morris for the first of City’s goals in a 2-0 win over Valencia U23s last night, in a Premier League International Cup group game at Carrow Road.

The 23-year-old has not featured for the first team since the opening day of the season, when he strained a stomach muscle during a late substitute appearance.

The tricky midfielder was withdrawn at half-time in a pre-planned substitution, alongside fellow returnee Graham Dorrans, who is making his way back from a groin strain.

“It was always planned to give them 45 minutes, that’s what the gaffer (Alex Neil) wanted,” City’s U23s coach Dmitri Halajko said.

Transfer News: Toffolo Joins Scunthorpe Until January

Norwich City youngster Harry Toffolo has joined Scunthorpe United on loan until January 3, 2017.

The 21-year-old has found first team opportunities hard to come by at Carrow Road with the likes of Martin Olsson, Robbie Brady and Steven Whittaker all ahead of him in the left back pecking order.

Toffolo has enjoyed loan spells at Swindon, Rotherham and Peterborough United in the past and will be hoping to catch the eye with the League One side.

Transfer Rumour: Norwich In Talks Over Sinclair Loan Move

Norwich City are among three Championship clubs that are interested in a loan deal for Watford striker, Jerome Sinclair, Sky Sports understands.

The highly rated 19 year old front man only joined the Hornets in July after his contract at Liverpool expired. However, the arrival of Stefano Okaka looks to have pushed him further down the pecking order, having already been behind Deeney and Ighalo.

 

Transfer Rumour: Sunderland Reignite Interest In Naismith

Sunderland are reported to be interested in Scottish international Steven Naismith.

The striker, currently at Norwich City, has been linked with a move to the Stadium of Light as David Moyes looks to strengthen his attacking options.

Naismith only joined the Canaries in January, scoring twice in 15 appearances as Alex Neil’s side were relegated from the Premier League..

But now it seems Naismith could be set for a move to the North East as the Black Cats seek to add new additions before the 11pm deadline.

A move would see Moyes reunite with a striker who he signed for Everton in 2012 and who he thinks highly of.

 

Transfer Rumour: Palermo Want To Resign Kyle Lafferty

Italian side Palermo have moved on from their interest in Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, who looks set for Nice, and are reportedly set to sign Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty.

It is reported by TuttoMercatoWeb that Palermo are highly likely to make a move for the Northern Ireland international before the transfer window shuts this evening.

Palermo are desperate to bring in a striker this summer but after missing out on Balotelli they are struggling for options.

With this in mind the Italian club are ready to make a move for Lafferty, as he has a good relationship with the club already.

The Norwich striker spent the 2013-14 with Palermo, impressing with 12 goals in 36 appearances before heading to Norwich.

His time at Carrow Road has not been a hit, but his form for Northern Ireland has made him an eligible target despite his Canaries woes.

The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Cardiff City this week but a return to his happy hunting grounds could prove tough to resist for the frontman.
