The dust has settled on a season to forget for Norwich City. Now the focus turns to what lies ahead at the start of a potentially pivotal summer for the football club.

In the third day of a week-long series canvassing the opinions of Norwich City fans on a range of issues we want to hear whether the Canaries need to trim the existing squad further and if so, who do you think might have to be offloaded to generate funds to bring in new blood?

New sporting director Stuart Webber sanctioned the release of seven senior players towards the end of the past campaign - headed by former number one John Ruddy. But interim chief Alan Irvine made it clear during his 10-game spell the real test is dealing with those currently under contract at Carrow Road who may be deemed surplus to requirements.

Webber has also outlined City must be 'creative' if they want to reshape the existing squad to mount a Championship promotion challenge. City have a number of talented youngsters on the books under lengthy contracts, along with the likes of Jonny Howson and Ivo Pinto who are approaching the prime of their careers. But who might have to be sold if Norwich want to address the deficiencies in the existing roster?
