Norwich City, Leeds United and Sheffield United are all being linked with moves for Shrewsbury Town midfielder Jon Nolan.

According to the Daily Mirror [March 19th, page 47], Norwich lead the Championship chase for Nolan - which Leeds and Sheffield United 'will join'.

Nolan has kickstarted his career at Shrewsbury - who are League One's surprise package this season - having been let go by Everton at the start of the decade.

The 25-year-old has scored seven goals and created another six from the centre of the park, in what is his first season at New Meadow since signing from Chesterfield on a three-year contract.

Prior to that, Nolan had spells at Stockport County, Lincoln City and Grimsby Town, where he first played under Shrewsbury manager Paul Hurst, whose new side are second in the standings.

And with clubs such as Norwich, Leeds and Sheffield United said to be showing interest, Huyton-born Nolan could be bound for the Championship whether the Shrews finish the job or not.

Is Nolan an exiting target for Norwich / Leeds / Sheffield United?
