Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has been linked with two potential Scottish recruits. Skysports claim the club have made a firm bid to Leeds for long term target Robert Snodgrass - although there was no official confirmation from either club.
Former Canaries boss Paul Lambert was a confirmed admirer of the attacking midfielder, but City reportedly cooled their interest 12 months ago with Leeds valuing the player at £8m.
Snodgrass has been offered an improved contract at Elland Road, although the ambitious Scot has made no secret of his desire to follow Jonny Howson into the Premier League at some stage in his career.
Talksport also offered a new potential transfer target for the Canaries in the shape of Hearts’ defender Andy Webster. The 30-year-old is approaching the final year of his current Tynecastle contract and could be available for £250,000. Hughton’s assistant manager Colin Calderwood has an excellent knowledge of the Scottish game after his recent spell as boss of Edinburgh rivals’ Hibs and Hughton has already raided north of the border this summer to recruit Rangers’ Scottish international Steven Whittaker.
