Norwich could sanction loan exits, approaches made from Championship clubs

Norwich Carrow Road 2

HITC Sport understands that deals are in the offing.

Kyle Lafferty and Graham Dorrans are both wanted on loan from Norwich when the emergency window opens and host of Championship clubs are battling for both.

Northern Irish striker Lafferty has never been given much of a chance under Alex Neil and he is anxious to get first-team football ahead of this summer's Euro 2016 finals.

Indeed 28-year-old Lafferty has featured in just one league game this season, coming off the bench in their home defeat to Leicester City in October.

Leeds are leading the chase for Lafferty, but a number of other sides are also chasing him and are ready to make Norwich offers in the coming week.

Scottish midfielder Dorrans has certainly seen more action than Lafferty, starting 12 league games - but he has started just once this year and now a number of Championship clubs have made contact and have not been handed a straight no.

Dorrans has the likes of Burnley, Derby, Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough interested in landing him. He did attract interest during the Premier League window from both Swansea and West Brom - but Norwich did not want him to go to a Premier League club.

A source close to Norwich confirmed to HITC Sport: "A lot of money has been spent and both Lafferty and Dorrans could be heading out, there is plenty of interest and deals could be done very quickly."

HITC Sport understands Tony Andreu could make it three Norwich players to depart on loan.
