Hartson, 34, who played six games for City on loan from West Brom in 2007, has been diagnosed with testicular cancer, which has now spread to his brain.

“I was absolutely devastated and shocked last night when I heard the news,” said Gunn.

“I sent John a text on behalf of everyone at Norwich City Football Club. He is a lovely lad and to have something like that happen to him so early in his life is devastating.

“But as I said to him, he is a battler, he is a fighter and it's a fight he can win. We send all the best wishes from the players and the staff and I am sure the fans of Norwich City. Although he only spent a short period with us I think he made an impression with us and we wish him all the best.”
