Norwich City striker Chris Martin is being lined up for a loan move to Derby County, according to reports.

The Derby Telegraph today reported that the Rams were poised to send out Theo Robinson on loan to a Championship club until the end of the season and had targeted 24-year-old Martin as a replacement.

Martin does not feature in City manager Chris Hughton's Premier League squad of 25 for the rest of the season.

He has made just three senior appearances for the Canaries this season before a loan spell at Swindon, where he scored once in 12 appearances, from a penalty.

He has scored 34 goals in 117 senior outings for City and is out of contract in the summer.
