Leeds United keen on move for Norwich City striker
After being linked earlier in the transfer window, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Leeds United are back in the hunt for Norwich City’s striker Kyle Lafferty.
The 28 year-old has drawn plenty of interest from the Whites and Norwich are still keen to to loan out the striker to get more regular playing time.
Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford arrived in East Anglia yesterday and puts Lafferty further down the pecking order with Norwich, and Leeds are still eager to complete a loan deal for the attacker.
A towering forward standing at 6ft 4in, Lafferty has been at Carrow Road since 2014 but has only gone on to make 19 league appearances for the Canaries, and spent part of 2015 away on loan at Turkish side Caykur Rizespor.
After just two goals in 14 games for the Super Lig club, the Northern Irish international returned to Norwich but has failed to nail down a first team place this season.
Having previously played in Switzerland with Sion and in Italy with Palermo, Lafferty’s most prolific spell came during his time in Scotland with Championship side Rangers.
38 goals in 138 games for the Light Blues helped the club win three Scottish Premier League titles, one Scottish Cup, and two Scottish League Cups.
A further accolade on Lafferty’s CV is a Serie B title with Palermo which he achieved during the 2013-14 season after netting 11 league goals in 34 games.
