Norwich City could renew their transfer interest in Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle in January.

The London Evening Standard claimed on Friday Gayle remains a potential target for the Canaries, who had lined up a reported £11m move in the final days of the summer transfer window before the Eagles’ backed out of the deal.

Gayle was regularly touted with a Norwich close-season move after rejecting the chance to join Championship strugglers Bristol City and the Standard report Alan Pardew could be willing to finally sanction the 25-year-old’s exit if they line up a suitable replacement.

Gayle is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered in the 0-0 Premier League draw against Manchester United in late October. The former Peterborough striker scored a hat-trick in the Capital One Cup 4-1 win over Charlton, but had failed to score a league goal in six appearances this season.

Alex Neil bolstered his strikeforce prior to the new season with the signing of Dynamo Kiev’s Diuemerci Mbokani but Gary Hooper is on loan at Sheffield Wednesday until mid-January and Kyle Lafferty continues to be heavily touted with a New Year departure as he looks for regular football ahead of Northern Ireland’s Euro 2016 appearance next summer.

  • Can only assume that this would mean Grabban would be allowed to leave. It's an upgrade, and Austin has injury issues so is a much bigger gamble, the money isn't the issue there the fitness is. Would like to see zero cb rumours and a player just arrive early in the window

  • Presumably this is because Norwich have nobody to fill the role that Luca Becchio played now that Gary Hooper has gone to Sheffield.

  • Let's face it. Would Charlie Austin want to come to Naaarridge? He could probably have the pick of any of the mid or top Prem teams.I dread to think what his wages are but he must be on £50,000 or more per week. I'd love him to come to Carra Rud but there's no way McNally would pay that. Anyway, one player doesn't make a team and QPR aren't exactly setting the Championship alight this season even with the services of Charlie Austin. Let's go with what we've got for now as we've got no other options atm. Come January, I will trust in Sir Alex. He knows what and who he wants. Let's just hope he gets the backing of the board. I think he will,being as there's so much at stake.
