Norwich target David Marshall last night revealed he would welcome a Carrow Road loan switch.

Celtic's back-up keeper has been restricted to just two appearances for the Hoops this season behind Polish international Artur Boruc.

Marshall's agent Willie McKay confirmed Norwich had inquired about a potential loan move and the 21-year-old admitted he is desperate for first team football.

"If I went to Norwich and played games then it benefits me and Celtic," he said. "Ideally I would like to get back in the first team at Parkhead but Artur is doing great and the boys are doing very well. I just want to get away playing. I don't know if you would say it's frustrating. Artur has helped the team get through to the last 16 of the Champions League and he has done well in the league so you can't complain.

"You can't go and see the manager and say why am I not getting a game, because the boy in front you is doing great. I just want to get my head down and hopefully something will come for me pretty soon."

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan stated over the weekend Marshall's exit could leave the Hoops short of cover.

Marshall has also been mooted as a possible makeweight in a potential Celtic cash-plus-player deal for Hibs' midfield duo Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson.

"I haven't heard anything about that at all," said Marshall. "People are putting two and two together. My agent has said nothing and neither has the gaffer so that is total speculation at this point."

Grant has again been linked with a £500,000 move for Bournemouth's League One hotshot James Hayter.

Fresh weekend media speculation suggested Premiership strugglers Wigan had jumped to the head of the queue for the Dean Court goal machine.

Bournemouth boss Kevin Bond revealed recently his prized asset could be sold to ease the club's financial situation.

"I'm fully aware of the position but I haven't had a phone call about James Hayter," he said. "I can understand why he is sought after. Of course he is someone I fear losing because he is a good player."
