Eyes down for Norwich City's deadline day transfer whirl.

City were touted with a reported £6m move for Wigan's Yanic Wildschut on Monday night, matched by Championship rivals Derby County, but the Latics are desperate to keep hold of the left-sided player.

Fellow Dutchman, Mitchell Dijks, looks poised to join on loan from Ajax and Robbie Brady continues to be touted with a move in the opposite direction.

Alex Neil maintains he wants to improve his squad ahead of Tuesday's 11pm deadline but getting deals done is likely to hinge on Brady's club record sale.

Sergi Canos has also been linked with a Carrow Road exit as Brentford weigh up whether to test City's resolve, but it is the Republic of Ireland international's future that will dictate whether Neil can make a splash or settle for the status quo.

Burnley have led the chase for Brady but Clarets' counterpart Sean Dyche was giving nothing away on Monday.

'There's a couple of situations which we hope will open and get done but there are no guarantees of course,' he said. 'There's a lot of players that we're interested in, we'll wait and see if we get any of them over the line.'

Neil refused to be drawn on weekend reports of interest in Wildschut, who appears to be high on his target list, despite Wigan's determination to hold onto their prized asset.

Barnsley centre back Angus MacDonald is another who Neil has tracked, while the Scot hinted he may need short term cover in central midfield with a growing injury list, and Alex Tettey one booking away from a two-match ban.
