Wolves are reported to be considering a £1m move for City striker Simeon Jackson.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

New manager Dean Saunders has made signing a striker his top priority. The Championship club’s head of development and recruitment, Kevin Thelwell, watched the 25-year-old Jackson in action in Saturday’s goalless draw against Newcastle.

Jackson has scored three times in 15 appearances for City this season, his latest goal coming in the 3-0 FA Cup win at Peterborough.

The Canaries are also reported to be rivals with Ipswich for keeper Lee Camp, who can leave Nottingham Forest on a free transfer. Camp, 28, made three appearances for Norwich during a three-month loan spell in 2006, but one national newspaper claims Town boss Mick McCarthy hopes to tempt him with a better chance of first-team football. Camp was dropped for young Karl Darlow as Forest beat Peterborough 2-1 on Saturday.

Swansea striker Danny Graham, linked with the Canaries, is keen to hold talks with Sunderland, according to The Sun. QPR and Reading are also reported to be chasing Gateshead-born Graham, who is said to be keen to return to the North East.

  • For me Snodgrass is well on the way to be player of the season.His first touch is excellent,His delivery is good( minus the corner kicks against Newcastle)but everyone has a bad day.He takes defenders on unlike Elliot Bennett who has the pace to do so but not the confidence and his work rate is the best I've seen since Gary Holt. What more can you ask for?A left footed player on the right is on his good foot when he cuts inside as is Pilko on the right.Think about it.

  • Is anyone else getting uncomfortable with the lack of even a rumor of us signing anyone? It will be sad to see Jackson go but I agree with Jigs69, he's not getting the games and he's not fitting our mold right now.

  • This one is inevitable, although I expected it to come in the summer, however its silly season lets double that £1m and then talk, Jacko deserves to play and he's not getting a look in really for us and all people are sayin is we need a striker so obviously most do not think he is good enough\does not fit our team. It will be sad to see him go.

  • At present most teams are bringing players, keeping top flight status is essential this year and I believe the club fully recognises this!! There is a lot of smoke and mirrors in this transfer window, none more so than NCFC. I am sure we have identified targets and are working hard behind the scenes and keeping the media out. We should not be looking at keepers, there is enough cover here, we all know we need improve our goals for column. My main concern at this point is other teams are picking up points and our breathing space is disappearing. The next three games, Liverpool (a), Spurs (h) and Man Utd (a) don't look too promising and our position may not be so healthy after this. But OTBC let's get behind them and pray we get some surprise news on the transfer front.

  • BBC also has it that Graham favours a return to the North East (Sunderland). Cinnamon would be too cheap by far @ £1million. Surprisingly, to me at least, my PoS so far is Bradley Johnson. Pa Snipps has some relevant points to make and there really is no justification for being rude to him - save it for the Trolls & the patronising journos.

  • City can afford to let Jackson go. Also Holt, Hoolahan, Pilkington, Elliot Bennett, Morison, Kane..... We've got Snodgrass!... Our 'Mr do it all'. Don't need anyone else! They only mess their shirts up. For gods sake Mr Hughton, he is a Left Winger. Stick him out there and give the others a chance, or give him a rest, and see what happens. There is NOTHING to lose!

  • Can't help but feel for Jackson. He's always been an honest hard working player. Hasn't had the opportunities to make an impact this season so he may well be better off within a club where his efforts would be better rewarded. Maybe there are other options for him though rather than just striker?....an alternative to Hoolihan perhaps??? (from the orginal Mellow Yellow)

  • I'm a bit confused, a speculative article about a rumour that someone may have offered the club money for Jackson seems to have kicked off appalled comments about us letting him go. Have the club actually received an offer? If so have they accepted it? As far as hearing what strikers we are after I'd be a bit worried that we fell into the same trap as Liverpool did, "oh they've just sold a striker for silly money and need to replace him, let's double the price of our pony tailed carthorse as they have silly money".

  • Jackson has not been given the rub off the green this season hence it may be that others are looking at him. I have watched all the games, albeit from a distance, but I cannot help but wonder whether Jackson used in the right way is part of plan B? We seem to be now in the situation where players are going missing more and more and the opposition are not allowing us the free kicks where we can score from. Another keeper no, for if Arsenal are going to give us silly money then keep Jackson and add another striker! In the past we have done transfers out of the light of the media I hope that is the case now. OTBC

  • Irongloves! I do think about it, in depth. Snodgrass is a LEFT WINGER. He was bought to bring service by way of accurate crosses to Holt, not to be our No1 striker. He is just clogging the penalty area up. Holt now doesn't receive a decent cross from him or Pilkington, because he too is helping with the clogging. Hoolahan has no one to pass to creating the delicate through balls to the wings, cause there is no one there....... Norwich City's forward line has become no better than a schoolboy show. They ALL need to be given a work zone, and told what their responsibilities are, and it's NOT Left Footed players operating in the inside right position! Bring back Drury!

Lots if prem experience, would help us through to the end, possibly beyond, if the season if he stays fit.

We just need another 4 midfielders ( all of whom should be injured) + another keeper ( decent shot-stopper who can't command his area should do the trick). Sorted .

  • Interesting that Mellow Yellow, a big fan of Snodgrass, singles him out for maximum points Snodgrass has scored 5,( Mainly from Free kicks). Gosh! That's 2 more than Bassong. Surely he was bought to provide service to Holt. Instead we now seem to have too many cooks in the kitchen, and it isn't working. Mr Hughton, I cannot believe that you or others in your office do not read some of the comments posted on here. To ignore all of them until you are desperate, as the Hoolahan re-instatement showed, does not make sense. Come on here under a false name as we all do, and air your problems!!

  • Waclor I agree, it would be nice to have a plan B. I know we don't have much money to spend so a striker is top priority and unfortunately the most expensive commodity. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a loan signing but lets hope its a decent one with a little experience i.e - Lakaku and not another Harry Kane.

  • It's all a big worry really. If we played a different way with more players up front Jackson would be spot on. Quick and swivels on a sixpence. Letting him go makes me wonder just what our attacking plans are and where our goals our going to come from. Swansea and Southampton have much scoring options than us. If we are going to play with one 'big boy' up front our midfield are going to have to up their skill levels re. shooting and crossing. I've got a horrible feeling that this is all going to end very badly.

  • I am disappointed that Jacko seems not to have had the opportunity to break thro` @ City. He`s a good pro, a gentleman - and not a bad player, either! Didn`t we pay the best part of £1million for him from Gillingham? Now he`s had Championship and Prem experience\fitness levels, he has to be worth more than that now. He`s in his prime. Wish him well whatever the outcome. His late goal rush got us to the Prem!! Specially the winner vs Derby off an unspecified part of his anatomy in injury time.

  • Yes MellowYellow I am getting very uncomfortable especially with Southampton taking a point at Stamford Bridge, the Harry effect at QPR and Reading adding to their squad. I am worried that Norwich may soon suffer from second match syndrome where the opposition know that Snodgrass has to cut inside from the right and that those midfield players who make it into the opposition penalty area are not the best of finishers. Plan B required, Hoots. Get on with it man.

  • He doesn't get enough goals because of the way Hughton uses a lone striker. Play him up front with Holt regularly and watch the goals go in. Would be sad to see him go, but from his point of view he needs games and he's not going to get them here.

  • Jacko will be prolific in the right team. Not as lone striker or a Hoolahoop lookalike. Just what he is; quick, hard-working, brave and a good pro. He is not a Defoe, nor a van Persie. He has a few years ahead of him before he returns to Canada to run his Academy. If that`s what he wants.

  • Stu, I have to ask, what exactly are you talking about? ....6 players?..... Dynamite? CH is hardly the next Pep Guardiola however he has sent us on a 10 game unbeaten run, we are currently mid table (where we want to be right?), the games we lost over Christmas where only by one goal ( that certainly didnt happen last year), the players brought in over the summer have been excellent at times and a midfielder called Snodgrass (shock horror) scored some goals when our strike force wasn't up to it. Lets be realistic here, our squad is still punching above its weight and until we can afford overpriced mid table players we should be positive about what we've got and try to build on it.

  • I will be incredibly sad to see Simeon go. The lone striker role is not for him as he is not built for it, however as part of a duo up front he can be sensational. He always had a habit of being in the right place at the right time. If he did go then I would harbour no hard feelings about him whatsoever - what choice does he have at the moment?! I cannot see the formation changing at all so that puts Simeon in the shade. He could be a vital part of Wolves turning themselves around. As for new signings in general, I perfectly understand that there is no doubt A LOT of to-ing and fro-ing going on behind the scene, it would be very interesting to see the list of names we've approached so far! Whilst I am confident that the right player is being sourced, CH needs to start getting his bottom in gear if he's not to repeat the fiasco at the end of the summer transfer window! OTBC

  • Like many other supporters I will be sad to see Simeon Jackson leave Norwich. However this could be a prelude to obtaining a better striker. We can only hope so. The only way for any club to survive in the Premiership is to try and improve the team by adding better talent than it has on it's books.

Why not buy an injured midfielder and send him out on loan when he recovers while we are at it? I'm really hoping the rumour mill is wrong here, if we sell Sim we will need to buy two strikers this window I reckon.

Unfortunately, he is not getting enough games to improve so a move may be the best thing for his career. Id like him to stay, but realistically, I think Jacko and Morro will be leaving sooner or later.
