Sky Sports are reporting that Norwich City have made a bid in the region of £5m for Swansea City striker Danny Graham.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Graham scored 12 goals in the Premier League last season and has found the net seven times in all competitons in the current campaign.

The 27-year-old - who has scored six goals against the Canaries in four games before this season - has found himself out of favour at the Liberty Stadium recently due to the form of Michu.

Sunderland were earlier reported to have made a similar bid for the Gateshead-born striker.

  • I have heard that Danny G want to stay in the north east and he will sign for Sunderland if true that nock that on the head may be GH will go for Hooper or the other striker up there.

  • or maybe we have bugeted for this already? There are so many that believe Hughton is in his office picking his nose. Theres a plan and it's being followed, sit back and enjoy the BS because at least 99% of everything thats on every sports website and in every sports newspaper section is complete and utter BS and only there to tweak the minds of the weak minded. We will know when a press conference is called and not before.

  • Doubt he'll go to Sunderland, he's been pretty public of his dislike for the club having grown up NUFC, and the Sunderland message boards are full of don't sign him stuff. This would be a terrific signing, he's a goalscorer.

  • Another Day, Another Dollar! Mr Houghton really has to look at his striking team. Let me try to be constructive. Put your self in Snodgrass boots, you have just picked up the ball 10 yards from the corner of the penalty area, you can't go down the right, because it would mean a right foot cross, not something I do well. So do as the manager tells you and cut inside and try a left foot shot on goal. Problem! There is a goalkeeper and 4 defenders blocking your path. Holt and Pilkington are in there too . That's 8 bodies between you and goal. You haven't a snowballs chance in hell of getting a shot anywhere near goal. But you let rip, and an easy clearance is made. Got to go now, other matters pressing,but I will return

  • It is difficult to understand why Norwich have publicised their bid for Graham when they pride themselves on being tight lipped until a deal is finalised. They have made public their interest in players in years gone by when they have no chance of achieving a successful outcome - because of interest from other clubs, excessive transfer fee or players demands - just to appease the fans who yearn for some transfer activity. Is this happening again!

  • Totally agree with you guys, nothing wrong with switching wingers during games to mix it up a bit. But i believe our Maker made us right or left footed for a reason. Be a shame not to use it. I am amazed that we have never even seen Snoddy switch to the left even for a spell during the game. Newcastle totally blocked him out of the game and stopped him cutting in.

Believe me, I have no desire to destroy or overthrow. ..I just try to give a view of the tactics currently employed, and point out where they are going wrong-and they are going wrong!.. I played enough football to know that more is produced if left footed players play on the left side of the pitch..... I am not talking Free Kicks and Corners, but getting down that wing and crossing to the penalty spot. There are less crosses coming in now than when Drury was overlapping, ably supported by Tierney. I am not criticising Snodgrass, but sooner or later Mr Hughton will have to change things!

  • I personally feel there are 3 areas we are lacking in. 1) the obvious which is another striker 2) Pace in our team 3) a centre mid who can control the game, with tettey and jonno we have two great ball winning midfielders but between the two they cannot pass or control a game like fox can. With a player who can control a game like fox and win the ball like tettey we would see a lot more attacking territory

  • Might only be three goals Jed but he has had very limited opportunity with Michu first choice. Don't underestimate him, he was the best player to come to Carrow Road all season in our promotion year (with Watford). Exactly the player we need. A younger more mobile version of Grant Holt.

  • Contrary to what appears to be the general view, I personally find Ged's comments quite amusing. He's far more readable (and often makes more sense) than either (a) those who take the bait and attempt a serious or abusive response, or (b) the self appointed "serious" commentators. Pa Snips, you are a bit of an enigma to me. As I've said before, great name - but quite subversive comments. Are you Ged in disguise, attempting a more subtle approach?

  • I think we can all agree that Pa Snipps and Steady On have provided useless and ill-informed contributions and let's ignore them. As for Graham, fantastic player that moves well off the ball and has a bit of everything, and a great goalscoring record of the 2010-2011 season as the top scorer in the championship and another great 2011-2012 season in the premiership with Swansea. Given the ability of our wingers it'd be a great move, I also think with the extra pace Graham will have over Holt he may combine and attack incisively with Hoolahan.

  • I think the key to being able to play 2 strikers lies in the nature of our midfield players and the formation that suits them; ie the "twin destroyers" of Johnno & Tettey. As samjstewart says, a centre midfielder who can conrol the game would be good. Perhaps Tettey will develop into such a player? Then perhaps we could have Pa`s dream of 2 players truly operating as wingers (but defend when needed). Nobody could fault Snods` commitment or workrate, but I`d like to see what he might achieve from the left wing. All will be revealed.......

  • Certainly worth a punt. 5 million might be on the high side but he's a vast improvement on Morison and can swapped with Holt without changing formation. Considering his limited time on the pitch he has done well and works hard for the team. Sometimes you have to pay extra to get what you want. It's better than wasting money on a might be. Better than risking a fortune of the clubs money like Harry appears to be doing that's for sure. Don't worry Gedward, CH is not going to be wasting any of your season ticket money on any players. I doubt any other manager will be either??

  • Saints paid £7m for a bloke called rodriguez from Burnley, so £5m for a striker who has prem experience, and a reasonable goalsgames record is no bad deal. Did Sunderlands confirmation of their bid force our hand ? . Swansea have had their bid for Kenwynne Jones knocked back. Will this stop the deals.[Could we offer Morrison to Stoke to grease the wheels] ? and I agree with Pa we need to get the crosses in, with a bit of accuracy and it would help to have the correct footed players on the wings so they can go outside and get a cross in rather than cut inside all the time .

  • As for losing Jackson or Morrison, neither of them have shown that they can hold down a place in the premiership but would probably be of interest to teams in lower divisions.Now is an ideal time to prune the squad of dead wood and bring in some new blood to fill our obvious need for a striker of some substance.

It really isn't good enough. You'd thing that with the ridiculous season ticket increase that we'd actually be able to afford a player that could score more than 3 goals! I'll be having words.
