City midfielder Tom Trybull being tracked by Blackburn
Norwich City midfielder Tom Trybull could be set to stay in the Championship but join Blackburn on loan ahead of the domestic transfer deadline.
Trybull, along with Moritz Leitner and Josip Drmic, are deemed surplus to requirements at the Canaries, and the German playmaker had been linked with a move to Turkey earlier in the window.
But City’s divisional rivals, Rovers, are in the market for a central midfielder and the Lancashire club is believed to have made an approach.
Talks continue with the domestic deadline for deals to be completed set for 5pm on Friday.
The 27-year-old has made 59 appearances for the Canaries since his successful trial following a decision to move on from Den Haag in Holland in 2017.
Trybull was a key figure in the club’s Championship title-winning triumph and made 20 league and cup appearances last season but appears to be out of favour now as part of a squad refresh overseen by Daniel Farke and Stuart Webber.
City is not scheduled to face Blackburn until December 12 but it would be expected Trybull could not face his parent club as part of any proposed loan arrangement.
Trybull is under contract at Norwich until 2022, with an additional one year option, after signing a fresh deal in July 2019.
