Empoli's Riccardo Saponara continues to be of interest to Juventus who have been told they will not listen to offers before the summer. Previous interest of Norwich and Everton has waned. }.

Norwich City could be getting Tom Lees from Sheffield Wednesday in January.
05 Nov 2015 19:21:01
So reports have it, don't know a thing about him other than he's getting rave reviews. But sadly not a "name" to get overly excited about IMO, so will have to wait and see what happens for real in January.
14 Nov 2015 10:39:59
Ragnar Sigurdsson has only 6 months left of his contract with FC Krasnodar. Get him. Big and strong centre back.
01 Sep 2015 18:23:12
Just sold PLAYER OF THE SEASON Bradley Johnson (fans favourite)for a pathetic 6million, were a joke club and deserve to go down now absolute joke ncfc board is money obsessed
01 Sep 2015 18:31:01
All the board want to do is make money and not make our club better sold one of our good players get the board out and get some one in how do care
01 Sep 2015 18:36:00
This is the weirdest deal ever. They don't need the money as there is masses of millions available which they have not even spent yet. Everyone has nearly been free in some way except for a couple.
So where is the replacement cover for Johnson?
I'm confused by this!
01 Sep 2015 18:49:37
Plenty of cover for Johnson ie Brady and Dorrans plus squad has plenty of midfielders when Mulumbu is back. Still I'm sorry to see him go as he's been a superb player for us. Has been benched a lot so maybe he has pushed for a move. He deserves to be playing.
01 Sep 2015 19:38:52
Small consultation Matt Jarvis signed as his replacement ,still poor window ,
01 Sep 2015 20:01:55
Disappointing transfer window. completely gutted by the lack of premiership class players, what are the board playing at???
why was Bradley johnson sold??? answer please Mr McNally.
did we sign Matt Jarvis?? can't find any confirmation of it
02 Sep 2015 10:48:58
Watford and Bournemouth get promoted and build a premiership squadntomtry and stay in this leaugue what ever the cost, we get promoted through the moneynrich playoffs and build an average 11 players saving as mjch money as possible and sell are player of the season to make back ttansfer money and end up with by far the weakest squad in the league
02 Sep 2015 10:57:53
Also we've kept someone whos not fit to wear the norwich shirt (grabban) and sold are most passionate hard working player who no doubt was a role model and favourite in the dressing room
03 Sep 2015 01:03:25
We couldn't sell Grabban. No chance we are selling him to Bournemouth unless Hell is forecasting snowy weather. Firstly we don't want to sell to rival and secondly we can't reward toddlerish behaviour. He is on the naughty step now/ grounded/ no more sweeties and definitely no more day trips to Rotherham.
05 Nov 2015 14:17:23
"All the board want to do is make money"
And a good thing they do, whoever heard of a business that didn't aim to make money?
Having an income of £120 Million doesn't mean there is £120 Million in the bank. Its paid over three years. that's £40 Million per season. The last club wage bill was announced as £44 Million per season. So that's an instant shortfall of £4 Million per season.
So, in order to build up a squad, the club needs to make money in additional ways.Such as selling players who are no longer guaranteed a place in the 1st team. Which BJ wasn't. And that was the Managers choice to accept the bid, not the Boards.
Football is a business first, a sport second. We may not like it but that is how it is.So our club has to be ran as a business. And it is. Just as well really, if it was ran by some of our fanciful fans who live with their heads in the clouds, we'd go out of business within a year.
31 Aug 2015 21:35:57
Heard from a member of staff at Park Farm in Hethersett that Mbokani has been there today agreeing terms and finalising his move over to our club, unsure if it's permanent or a loan. Should be completed by tonight or early tomorrow. #OTBC
30 Aug 2015 12:31:04
norwich are in talks with palace over a 12m deal for gale and murray!! that's what a tabloid has said today
01 Sep 2015 18:56:22
I heard that we couldn't pull this one off as Palace are said to have been unable to get a replacement lined up in time. At least that was the hogwash that went out as the excuse. The bottom line is that we did too little too late. This player could have been signed early in the summer. However with Murray being sold that changed Palaces position. Bournemouth basically did us in the transfer market. Unbelievable. We were totally done over. Someone should lose their job over it.
29 Aug 2015 17:37:15
Mbokani is rumoured to have been signed on a years loan.
29 Aug 2015 20:41:59
Hope so. Much better value than Afobe. We are also now down to 3-1 with the bookies to sign Charlie Austin.
01 Sep 2015 01:49:20
Think the 2 Congos will do great for Norwich. Mulumbu says he will score goals.
28 Aug 2015 19:28:07
Apparently we have made an improved bid of £2m for Jonathan Walters. NO NO NO NO NO AND NO PLEASE
29 Aug 2015 10:56:37
Could not agree more - apart from Peter Morris no Ip5w1ch player has been a success at Norwich.
31 Aug 2015 21:28:22
The Walters rumour looks viable he is a Prem striker able to play one up top. I don't see it myself but he gets games at Stoke and they are no mugs.
27 Aug 2015 14:10:31
Norwich are locked in negotiations with Napoli for their centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.
Must be favorites to sign him as Southampton who were also interested are confident they will be able to prise defender Virgil van Dijk away from Celtic
28 Aug 2015 09:43:00
Norwich rumoured to have made ~8M pound bid, Napoli said to be wanting more like 11million. If clubs don't want or need to get rid of a defender this must be the worst time to put a bid in?
28 Aug 2015 13:39:50
Apparently Bayer Leverkeusen are also in the running for Koulibaly.
27 Aug 2015 13:18:37
Michael Turner has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan.
It was expected that Michael Turner would sign permanently and Gary Hooper would sign on a season long long.
Is there anything to read into this.
Grabban is almost definitely on his way out of the club. Does that mean that Gary Hooper is now required?
Are we after Virgil Van Dijk and Gary Hooper is bate.
If both Grabban and Hooper leave we will need two forwards not one. Gayle and Benik Afobe would be a good option.
27 Aug 2015 14:20:23
I agree Gayle and Afobe would be great additions, young hungry and with pace! Also now Turner has gone we must have a replacement lined up, hopefully Koubaily or nkoulou
26 Aug 2015 21:04:54
Lewis Grabban set to put in a transfer request at Norwich as his efforts to force through a move to Bournemouth take a new twist
26 Aug 2015 13:56:01
Bournemouth have offer 2 million for Grabban, less than Norwich paid for him last year.
Grabban walking out at Rotherham has weakened Norwich's hand.
To remove their investment in Grabban they need at least 5 million.
At best you could say Grabban in a good Championship striker. He is out of his depth in the Premiership.
It has been reported that Wolves have turn down Norwich 3rd Offer of 10 Million for Benik Afobe. If Norwich want him they will have to pay over the odds.
Alex Neil flew to Marseille on Sunday with Chief Exec, David McNally by private jet to watch Marseille thump Troyes 6-0.
Neil was watching Marseille's Cameroon International, Nicolas Nkoulou. He is a team mate of Bassong so there might be some mileage in this.
26 Aug 2015 12:09:57
WOLVES TRYING TO SCARE US OFF WITH A 14m PRICE TAG DO THE BOARD PUT THERE HANDS IN THERE POCKET WHAT YOU THINk ???
26 Aug 2015 13:15:14
14 mill for a championship player football gone mad time to move on .
26 Aug 2015 13:30:36
14m is a lot of money, maybe do a money plus player deal, like hooper, grabban or lafferty as part of the deal so we can snap him up.
26 Aug 2015 13:32:30
Not at £14 million; they only paid £2 million for him in January.
26 Aug 2015 15:37:42
Would rather stump up another mill and go for Austin!
28 Aug 2015 18:28:23
@Diderot - what Wolves paid for him in January is utterly irrelevant. It has no bearing on his value now.
His value now is whatever any club is willing to pay for him.
25 Aug 2015 16:04:42
Apparently we've upped the bid for Afobe to in the region of 8 million but wolves are going to reject it, how much more is he worth?
25 Aug 2015 18:28:26
He's a good player but it's starting to get a bit pricey. Well I guess that's young English talent for you.
25 Aug 2015 18:46:49
No Hooper or Grabban in the side at Rotherham. RVW playing up front on his own.
25 Aug 2015 20:58:00
Apparently Grabban has walked out!
26 Aug 2015 08:59:57
so we just swap Grabban for Michail Antonio.
26 Aug 2015 10:25:42
The Afobe valuation by Wolves was a predictable move. A player they wish to keep, multiple bidders (possibly), the timing is terrible too -so late in the window. This deal would have had a far greater chance of success early in the window and now makes the Gestede transfer look like a bargain.
Nonetheless this deal might still happen. Afobe has the same agent as Dorrans,Howson,Snodgrass and Wisdom. This will help. Wolves want other bidders and in particular they want Newcastle and their massive cheque book to join the fray.
The valuation is clearly nonsense given that Austin can be bought for £15m which in itself is also a daft valuation. Even if Newcastle are willing to get near that price for Afobe, which is doubtful,the player is far more likely to be given game time at Norwich. The action is now with other bidders if there are any. If not the next moves are either a revised Norwich bid or the player puts in a transfer request ( which he will probably be reluctant to do). If he does this the Wolves board will not be holding such a strong hand and they will not be able to hold out for a top dollar. In a negotiation like this just the threat of a transfer request has some value. The most pressing problem for Wolves however is in finding a quality replacement at short notice. Loza or Lafferty on a 1 year loan might give them time. £10-11m may be a price worth paying for Afobe and will give the Wolves board a fig leaf of respectability if they do sell. It's complicated but it is a deal that can be done. It would be great news if we can land this player.
26 Aug 2015 10:46:18
All good points, I agree with the loan aspect, maybe Hooper if it gets Afobe in
24 Aug 2015 15:35:54
If the rumour about Jonathan Walters was not bad enough, we are now supposedly preparing a bid for Glen Murray, I would rather we didn't get anyone in than these two. No disrespect to lower level clubs but these to are really not what a prem club should be looking at
25 Aug 2015 00:37:09
25 Aug 2015 09:53:00
Spot on! We don't need someone's cast offs!
27 Aug 2015 21:16:00
Glen Murray is a great player, I'd be happy with him at Norwich
23 Aug 2015 15:05:56
I have heard several rumours coming from people inside the club who are saying that Loic Remy is the one heading to Carrow road on a season long loan.As Chelsea have now signed Pedro Remy's game time will become less and this is now looking to happen within the next few days.OTBC.
With Neil failing to land his Targets he now has this opportunity to work with a classy striker for which he has been searching for all season.
23 Aug 2015 15:52:29
Would love this one to happen, big questions must be his salary, I dread to think what he is on, possible only if Chelsea subsidise his big packet. Oo wer
21 Aug 2015 15:59:25
Jonathan Walters. please tell me this is some kind of a sick joke
21 Aug 2015 18:01:01
Hopefully another player using city to get a better contract ,he wants 3yr Stoke offering 2yr .
21 Aug 2015 21:17:09
No No and No to walters. only good memory of him was his missed penalty!!
21 Aug 2015 23:29:49
We are obliged to make a bid due to the Stoke fixture tomorrow. It's traditional during the window. We don't want to buy him just bid on him. No need to panic.
21 Aug 2015 13:01:26
Been hearing this morning from a source very close to the club that there are 3 strikers being courted by Bristol City at the moment. If Fulham sign Gayle then Matt Smith would be surplus to requirements. Equally the same is being said about Gary Hooper of Norwich, the third a bit less likely but maybe a move for ex City man Sam Baldock. Also looking at premiership defender.
20 Aug 2015 10:14:31
Apparently we're now rumoured with Jelavic!
Please no way! Think we should pursue Afobe but think he may cost 8mill if Gayle is 6 and Gray is 7
20 Aug 2015 10:55:49
I would rather have
20 Aug 2015 20:31:11
Why not swap Hooper for Sam Byram Leeds?
21 Aug 2015 21:18:40
like the idea of afobe, young so time on his side and a compliment to Jerome, would be happy to offload Grabban if he signed
19 Aug 2015 14:20:43
Norwich are keen on a loan deal for Oussama Assaidi currently plying his trade in Dubai .Stoke winger Peter Odemwingie is seen as a potential back up loan deal
19 Aug 2015 12:08:06
It could be all change on the striker front at Norwich
a) Norwich have made a substantial offer for Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Benik Afobe. This fits what we have been saying young, fit, fast and he played with Nathan Redmond in the European Under-21 Chamionships.
b) Norwich Have also cast an eye over Nikica Jelavic. Although he played for Hull last season in the premiership he doesn't fit the bill. Reportedly on 55,000 a week, expensive at 6 million for his age.
c) Bournemouth could be interested in resigning Lewis Grabban, Norwich want close to 10 million for him. If they got offered that I would snap Bournemouth's hands off.
d) Celtic, Middlesborough and Hull all interested in Gary Hooper.
19 Aug 2015 21:48:46
I cannot see Bournemouth paying anywhere near that. They know exactly how good he is, and they wouldn't want to pay over double what they sold him for so recently.
20 Aug 2015 15:10:29
Adobe is an exciting prospect however with the value of Prem football it is difficult to see Wolves selling. It is a bit like us asking them to trade a promotion opportunity for the profit in selling us this player. This is one for January if at all and only then if Wolves are out of the promotion race. Our board must be aware of this.
18 Aug 2015 17:15:16
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Norwich have entered the race to sign Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly before the transfer window closes at the end of this month.
18 Aug 2015 22:35:19
Southampton look as though they have this one in the bag
18 Aug 2015 14:53:24
Norwich interested in winger Oussama Assaidi. He has premier league experience with Liverpool and Stoke.
Alex Neil says it is to add competition on the wing. let's hope it is just that.
18 Aug 2015 11:43:22
Middlesbrough will sign Norwich City striker Gary Hooper on loan, if they can agree a compromise with Norwich over his £30k a week wages.
Mustapha Carayol will re-join Chris Houghton at Brighton on loan before the window closes.
'Boro also looking at handing a trial to former Leeds Utd, Blackburn and England Goalkeeper Paul Robinson who is a free agent.
18 Aug 2015 13:58:15
Hooper said only yesterday he wants to force his way into norwich's starting line up so that he can get international recognition. That won't happen at Middlesbrough.
20 Aug 2015 19:04:27
I hope we keep Hooper.
Sure he is a fish out of water in the manager's preferred 4231.
However if we go to a more open 442 to chase a league game or to entertain the crowds in the lesser cup games then Hooper is the perfect player.
He is also a substitute CAM for Hoolahan in the 4231 and although not quite an exact fit he is a clever enough player to do a job.
Most importantly he has good stats and offers a variation in tactics to the manager of 352, 41212 and 442. Without him those options are not so credible.
Teams will eventually work out how to set up against a pressing 4231. When they do the manager will have to change things. Hooper gives him most of these options.
If he gets a decent run out in the cup games Hooper may well force his way into contention. Either way it is great that he wants to compete for a starting place. That is exactly the sort of attitude we need and another reason why we should keep him.
18 Aug 2015 09:50:19
According to the Times
Norwich City are on the verge of a deal to sign Mattia Destro on loan from Roma.
I would hope this includes an option to buy at the end of the season.
I would think this deal must be close as there are rumours circulating that Norwich City will let Gary Hooper out on loan, The stumbling block could be they want his £32,000-a-week salary paid in full.
17 Aug 2015 10:18:47
Celtic interested in re-signing Hooper.
Does this mean Norwich are closing in on a new striker?
I would settle for a swap with Virgil van Dijk moving to Norwich.
17 Aug 2015 17:00:46
Don't think he would come to us unfortunately as there are far bigger teams after him.
