Norwich City linked are reportedly interested in signing Middlesbrough striker Ashley Fletcher.

Media in the north-east say the Canaries, as well as Sunderland and Barnsley, are interested in Fletcher, most likely on loan for the rest of the campaign.

City are in the market for a striker and the 22-year-old Fletcher may fit the bill, although he has played little Championship football this season, starting just three matches for Middlesbrough.

New Boro boss Tony Pulis has given him just 11 minutes since he took charge and could decide to offload a player who cost the Teesside club £6.5m when they signed the former Manchester United trainee last summer from West Ham, where he had started just two league games.

Fletcher joined Barnsley from Manchester United and earlier this month, Tykes boss Paul Heckingbottom said he would be interested in taking the player Fletcher back to Oakwell before the end of the current window – although he clearly faces competition.
