Report: Norwich's Lewis Grabban doesn't fancy Leeds move despite potential Evans reunion

Norwich City forward Lewis Grabban isn't keen on a move back up North, according to reports.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Norwich City striker Lewis Grabban isn't keen on a move back up North, making a deal with Leeds United unlikely.

Whites boss Steve Evans is looking for loan additions to his squad at Elland Road ahead of the loan deadline later this month, and adding striking options is a priority for the Scot.

Chris Wood and Mirco Antenucci have shown signs of a promising partnership, but Evans has little depth behind the duo, with Lee Erwin and Souleymane Doukara rarely featuring between them this season.

A proven Championship striker would be a major boost for Leeds, and the Yorkshire Evening Post suggest that Evans has targeted Norwich City duo Kyle Lafferty and Lewis Grabban, given that both players have been out of favour at Carrow Road under Alex Neil.

However, the report states that Grabban - born in London - isn't keen on a move back up North, meaning he is unlikely to reunite with Evans.

Grabban has spent much of his career in the South, having played for Crystal Palace, Millwall, Brentford, Bournemouth and now Norwich, but he did have one permanent spell in the North, having featured under Evans at Rotherham United in a hugely successful spell.

Now though, it seems that Grabban is settled in the South again, meaning Evans may have to either focus his attention on signing Lafferty or look elsewhere for striking reinforcements as he bids to improve his Leeds squad.
