Norwich are ready to cash in on Yanic Wildschut just three-and-a-half months after his big-money deadline day signing from Wigan.
The Canaries will listen to offers for the winger as part of their bid to shake up the squad over the close season, Press Association Sport understands.
They are also looking to offload big earners Matt Jarvis and Steven Naismith, while midfielder Jonny Howson could return to Leeds after being touted with a £4m move in recent days.
Michael McGovern is another who can depart, and Rotherham want to take him on a season-long loan.
Wildschut signed from Wigan in January and has made nine appearances for the Canaries, scoring once, but will be one of the casualties of Norwich’s rebuild if they can find a buyer.
The 25-year-old has struggled to impress in his brief time at Carrow Road but is on big wages.
Norwich beat Derby to his signature but the Canaries need to trim their squad, with Jarvis and Naismith prime contenders to leave due to their wages.
Ex-West Ham winger Jarvis missed the whole of the season with injury and has not played for Norwich for a year while Sunderland are keen on Naismith, an £8.5m signing from Everton 18 months ago.
McGovern joined on a free after impressing during Northern Ireland’s run to the Euro 2016 second round but kept just three clean sheets in 22 appearances as Norwich finished eighth in the Championship.
Rotherham were relegated back to League One this season and would need the Canaries to continue to pay at least some of the 32-year-old’s wages.
Former England international goalkeeper John Ruddy has already been released along with Kyle Lafferty, Michael Turner and Sebastien Bassong.
