Swindon Town have reportedly enquired about taking young striker Jamar Loza on loan from Norwich City.

Canaries boss Neil Adams revealed he had received several loan enquiries for his young players last week, but no deals have yet been confirmed, with Adams wanting to ensure the clubs under-21s remain strong.

BBC Wiltshire suggest Swindon are one of the clubs interested in 19-year-old Loza, who has so far been capped twice at international level with Jamaica.

That follows an injury blow for the League One side which has ruled striker Jon Obika out for around 12 weeks with a shoulder problem.

Loza was handed his debut on the final day of last season, coming on as a 58th-minute substitute in a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal, following loan spells with Coventry and Leyton Orient in League One and Southend in League Two.

He has scored just one senior goal so far, for Southend, but has been a consistent scorer for City's U21 development team in recent seasons and scored a hat-trick in a recent 5-0 thrashing of Leicester in the Barclays U21 Premier League.

Loza also started the Canaries' 3-1 win against Crawley in the second round of the Capital One Cup and came on as a substitute in the third-round defeat at Shrewsbury last week.

The striker was not used in the U21s' 2-0 loss at Southampton last night although Jacob Murphy, who has been linked with a loan move to Preston North End, did play.
