The transfer window closes on Wednesday and Peter Grant needs reinforcements, although the latest name - Mark Fotheringham - to be linked with a move to Carrow Road might just prefer Rangers to Norwich.

The transfer window closes on Wednesday and Grant needs reinforcements, although the latest name - Mark Fotheringham - to be linked with a move to Carrow Road might just prefer Rangers to Norwich.

Grant has reportedly offered the 23-year-old a two-year deal at City, but the midfielder is training with Rangers - and Aberdeen and Hibs are also interested.

Fotheringham - who quit Swiss side Aarau last week in the hope of rekindling his international career - began his career at Celtic beforer moving to Dundee and then Freiburg in Germany.

His agent, Charlie Duddy, said: “Mark has the offer of a two-year contract at Norwich and a host of other clubs are interested.

“There's strong interest from Scotland and England and we'll assess all our options before making any decision.”

Grant didn't attempt to hide his interest in the free agent.

“He is a terrific player, a great skilful player with wonderful ability, there is no doubt about that,” Grant said. “He went to Germany and did very well there and then went to Switzerland for a while and played exceptionally well and wants to come back to Britain.

“Unfortunately, Rangers are in there first, but I have obviously spoken to the boy, he is very, very keen to come to Norwich. But Rangers are a massive club and if he gets the chance to go there maybe that's the chance he will take. But he knows I am interested so we will see how things go on from here.”
