The summer rumour mill started in earnest today with the Canaries finding themselves linked to Queen's Park Rangers winger Lee Cook.

The 23-year-old did himself every favour with his sharp strike in Easter Monday's clash at Carrow Road. Stand-in boss Gary Waddock admits if will be powerless to stop Cook going if either the Canaries, Sheffield United or Wolves do indeed come a-calling.

“I will not want to let him go because he is a quality player,” said Waddock. “But we all know the financial situation of the football club and if a big offer does come in for Lee Cook then money does talk.”

Whether a left-sided midfielder is actually Nigel Worthington's first priority this summer is, however, open to doubt.

For most - Canary management included - the No1 requirement is likely to be a no-nonsense, strapping centre-forward in the Steve Howard-mould with a right-sided midfielder not too far behind.

With both Darren Huckerby and Paul McVeigh able to fill that left-wing role, Worthington's interests may lie elsewhere.
