Norwich City are going to have to play a waiting game if they want to complete a move for PSV Eindhoven's Nils Ola Toivonen.

A £4.7m fee was reportedly agreed between the two clubs earlier in the week, leaving a possible move up to Toivonen and his agent to discuss.

The 26-year-old forward has fallen out with his current club over failing to sign a new deal and with only a year left on his planned stay in the Eredivisie, PSV are looking to cash in.

However having completed his international duty with Sweden on Wednesday, Toivonen plans on having a break before working out all of the options at his disposal.

'I'm going on vacation, and don't expect anything to happen this month,' said Toivonen. 'It's not the first to offer the best. I must be satisfied with the club and the contract.'

Fulham, Everton and West Bromwich Albion are the other Premier League clubs said to be interested in bringing Toivonen to England.

The summer transfer window officially opens on July 1.

Meanwhile, new Millwall manager Steve Lomas has admitted he would love to sign free agent Simeon Jackson following the striker's release from City.

The 26-year-old striker signed from Gillingham in the summer of 2010, was a key man in City's flight out of the Championship, but found regular opportunities hard to come by during his two seasons in the top flight.

Now he is left looking for a new club – and Lomas hopes he can be of service.

'He's the right type for us – he's quick and he can score goals,' Kenny Jackett's replacement told the NewsAtDen website. 'But I will be one of about 10 managers that wants Simeon Jackson because he's done very well at Norwich. Some people were a little surprised that they let him go.

'I like the boy. I think he's got something about him and we want hungry players. I like him because he plays like he's hungry and, when you get that, it's a nice little combination.

'We'll certainly be looking at strengthening up front. But I don't want to be rushed into anything because the current squad deserve a fair crack of the whip.

'We've got two up there at the moment, in Andy Keogh and Jermaine Easter, and I'm keen to have a look at the two younger lads, John Marquis and Aiden O'Brien as well.

'We're looking to bring in the right type as well as the right player. When people come into the group, they need to buy into what Millwall is all about.'

'We need three or four fresh faces and I'm constantly looking at that. I'm touching base with a lot of agents at the moment – things will probably start kicking off the end of next week when players come back from their holidays. I'm not ruling anything out at the moment. I've been on the phone a lot this week.'
