Canaries transfer target David Marshall last night left no room for doubt that he would jump at the chance to help Norwich back into the Premiership.

City boss Peter Grant last week had a £500,000 bid for the Scotland international goalkeeper rejected by Celtic, but has made no secret of the fact that he wants to revive the deal as soon as possible.

And his number one summer target has made it clear that the English Championship - and more specifically Norwich City - is the place to be.

“Norwich have high hopes of moving up to the highest level so I'd obviously be interested in going back,” said the 22-year-old, who handed in a transfer request at Celtic last week.

“They're one of just a number of clubs in that division who will be going for promotion next season - which makes the Championship one of the most competitive leagues.”

Marshall impressed during his injury-hit loan spell at City earlier this season, which was ended when he damaged ankle ligaments in the FA Cup fifth-round defeat at Chelsea in February, and Grant is convinced the twice-capped Scotland international can become part of the backbone of his team.

His hopes will have been boosted by Celtic's reluctance to part with first-choice keeper Artur Boruc, whose continued presence with the SPL champions prompted Marshall's transfer request.
