Jamie Cureton could be on his way out of Carrow Road and heading west to League Two Cheltenham Town with the new year transfer window open for business.
New Robins boss Mark Yates, who took over at Whaddon Road only a fortnight ago, is embarking on his first month of wheeling and dealing as a Football League boss after leaving Kidderminster - and one of his first signings could be City's 34-year-old forward.
Speaking after Cheltenham's 1-1 draw at Bradford on Saturday, Yates said: 'I have had a call from his agent, like I imagine many other managers have, and I am going to have to wheel and deal.
'I don't think there are pots of money available, but I'll be speaking to the chairman and the board to see what we can do. In an ideal world we'd bring in a couple to boost numbers and to improve the team as well.

'There are also a couple of young players I have been watching and speaking to managers about bringing in. We need bodies to make sure we are not too short.'
Cureton's return to Norwich has been a mixed bag, top scoring in the 2007-08 campaign but struggling ever since and with the striker in the final year of his contract at Carrow Road and not finding himself a regular feature in Paul Lambert's match day squads, his exit in either January or the summer seems inevitable.

But finances are tight at Cheltenham and he may have to offload players before new ones can arrive.
'I might have to look to move one or two on; I won't discard anyone, but sometimes it's the only way to get things moving,' said Yates, as he praised his players for a well earned draw in Yorkshire. 'The players were very good again, in poor conditions. I asked for a bit of character in the second half and they certainly gave that.'
