Championship chase on for Norwich midfielder Bennett

HITC Sport understands Wolverhampton Wanderers, Preston North End and Charlton Athletic are chasing Norwich City midfielder Elliott Bennett on loan.

Norwich City midfielder Elliott Bennett is a loan target for several Championship clubs in a beat-the-deadline move.

Bennett has found himself down the pecking order in Alex Neill's first-team plans with his only appearance coming off the bench for a late cameo in the Capital One Cup win over Rotherham United.

Norwich are thought to be happy to loan out Bennett so that he can regular first-team football under his belt.

Bennett enjoyed a two-month spell out on loan at former club Brighton & Hove Albion last season, making seven appearances during his stint at the Amex Stadium.

The 26-year-old returned to Norwich after his loan spell and helped the club secure promotion to the Premier League.

Wolves, where Bennett started his career, Preston and Charlton are thought to have been alerted to Bennett's possible availability and have expressed an interest in signing the player on loan.

Bennett, who can play at right-back, has a wealth of experience having played over 250 senior games in his career and the player is keen to be playing regular first-team this season.
