Following his move to Vitesse Arnhem, Ricky van Wolfswinkel leaves Norwich City as arguably the Canaries' worst ever striker, but who else would make that list?

At a cost of £8.5m for just two goals in 55 appearances for Norwich City, van Wolfswinkel's debut header against Everton was as good as it got.

Van Wolfswinkel went from potential cult hero to zero over the course of a disappointing campaign that failed to produce another goal - and saw him reduced to the role of back-up striker.

But is he Norwich City's worst ever striker? Others that could take that title include David Strihavka, Peter Thorne, Mike Sheron, Darren Beckford, Dean Coney, Goran Maric and James Vaughan - but who would you choose? Let us know by posting a comment below or filling in our survey.
