Norwich City veteran Dion Dublin insists he has yet to make a decision over his future despite appearing to say his goodbyes to the Canaries' fans at Hillsborough yesterday.

The 38-year-old ran over to the 2,000 travelling City supporters and looked to be saying farewell after the 3-2 defeat although Dublin revealed he will be sitting down with his family in the coming days to decide his immediate future.

Dublin, who scored City's second goal with a looping header against Sheffield Wednesday, insisted his gesture of clapping the Norwich fans at the end of the contest was nothing more than to thank them for their fantastic support.

"It was me saying thanks for your support this season," he said. "And thanks for travelling so far today.

"I'll go have talks with my family and do what's right for them - if that means signing for Norwich next season then I will do that.

"I've only got one decision to make and we all know what that is - it's to do what's best for my family."

Dublin said that whatever happens he will look upon his time at Norwich as a very happy period in his career.

"I can only say thank you to the fans for taking me to their hearts this year. They have been so good to me.

"The respect I've got from the players is great. The staff have been great. I have not got one bad thing to say about Norwich City Football Club."

Dublin is confident that he still has at least one more season left in his legs after terrorising the Owls' defence in the second half with his flick-ons and presence in the opposing penalty area.

"I feel that I can still affect a game," said the former England international. "I think that there's a little bit left in the legs - definitely another season.

"The hunger will never go away. Even when I retire that will never go away. When I retire and I'm doing whatever I'm doing then I'll still want to get out there."

Dublin said it was nice to be restored to his favoured position of striker in the second half against Sheffield Wednesday although he described the Canaries' first half performance as "embarrassing".

"I haven't scored for a while. It's what I do that's my job and what I feel like I have to do in my job.

"I've played a lot at centre half - it's very satisfying going up and winning headers and keeping clean sheets. But to score today on my last game was superb.

"But (the performance) was slightly embarrassing to be honest with you. The second half was better and we showed a little bit of something that was needed in the first half."
