Norwich City's out-of-favour striker Lewis Grabban is still a transfer target for old club Bournemouth.

Grabban was the subject of three failed bids in the summer transfer window before the Cherries returned on deadline day, but the 27-year-old remained in Norfolk after City failed to bring in fresh firepower.

The People claim Grabban is wanted by almost a dozen Championship clubs, as well as his old boss Eddie Howe.

Howe is desperate for attacking reinforcements in the January transfer window after top gun Callum Wilson was ruled out for a number of months with knee ligament damage. Glenn Murray reportedly rejected a summer move to Norwich after opting for the south-coast, but the experienced frontman has failed to convince after scoring only two Premier League goals in 10 top flight appearances for his new club.

Grabban has barely featured in the Premier League for the Canaries, with only a recent cameo appearance at Manchester City since late September.

The ex-Cherries striker started the season as Norwich's main frontline option, but amid Bournemouth's public courting was suspended and fined by the club after going AWOL from the team hotel prior to the Capital One Cup win against another of his old clubs Rotherham in August.
