Norwich City reportedly tracking Liverpool’s Brad Jones as James Vaughan is linked to Celtic

Chris Hughton has been linked with a raid on Liverpool for the Reds' back-up keeper Brad Jones.

Various red tops yesterday put Norwich City in the frame as a potential destination for the 30-year-old, who still has two years left on his Anfield contract. Jones has had a bit part role for the Scousers behind Spanish international Pepe Reina since his �2.3m move from Middlesbrough, but Hughton reportedly sees the Australian as experienced competition to John Ruddy. Jones has made just one Premier League appearance for Liverpool – an emotional substitute outing in a 3-2 win at Blackburn towards the end of last season that he dedicated to the memory of his late son who died of leukaemia.

Meanwhile, James Vaughan's pre-season goalscoring form has reportedly alerted Scottish champions Celtic to consider a season-long loan move. The Daily Record claimed yesterday Bhoys' boss Neil Lennon was interested after previously attempting to lure Vaughan north when he was at Everton. The 24-year-old has also been touted for a close season switch to Championship clubs Birmingham and Huddersfield.
