Norwich City could sell vice-captain Jonny Howson this summer in what will be huge summer changes for the club, according to The Mirror.

Norwich have set seven of their out-of-contract players for release this summer and it looks as though they won’t be the only ones leaving.  New Sporting Director, Stuart Webber, has reportedly told players that he needs to sell players in order to buy players and is looking to cut the budget.

Howson, 28, has two years remaining on his current Norwich City contract but could be sold this summer if a big bid comes in from a Premier League side.  However, he has also been linked with a move back to Leeds United, who look to have narrowly missed out on a play-off place under Garry Monk this season.  The midfielder left Leeds to sign for Norwich for around £2 million in 2012.

Howson has made 38 appearances for Norwich this season, scoring six goals along the way.  Norwich have had a mixed first season back in the Championship, sacking manager Alex Neil but enjoying some big wins recently.

Norwich are still managerless and Stuart Webber will need to find a new boss to take charge of the club this summer.  Fleetwood manager Uwe Rosler, Huddersfield manager David Wagner and Leeds boss Garry Monk are all understood to be targets.
