The Frenchman scored 15 goals in the Championship last season.
However that now looks unlikely after Norwich boss Alex Neill told his press conference today that nobody would be leaving the club on loan before the window shuts next week.

So with these two off the radar, where should Leeds turn next?
The Frenchman first came into English football after a switch to Leicester City from Stade Reims in 2009.
The 34-year-old striker has since become a top Football League striker and helped Bournemouth to promotion last season - scoring 15 goals in the Championship.
He would bring experience and most importantly goalscoring pedigree to the club. He has slipped down the pecking order at Bournemouth since their promotion - despite scoring 26 goals in 58 appearances for the club since his move from Charlton.
One problem might be Bournemouth's current lack of strikers but he would certainly be a good option after the disappointment in missing out on Lafferty and Grabban.
