Former Norwich City star Neil Adams believes Leon McKenzie will never turn out in a yellow and green shirt again.
Adams said he thought in the wake of comments by Canaries boss Nigel Worthington, after McKenzie asked not to travel to Derby on Saturday, he could see no way back for the striker.
Asked if he felt McKenzie had already played his last game for the club, Adams said: “I think he has.

“Judging by what the manager said after the game, he seems to be disappointed about way McKenzie has gone about putting in his request for a transfer and refusing to travel to Derby.”
But the former Canary right winger said he could understand some aspects of McKenzie's transfer request and stance.

“He could have gone about it in a better way,” he said. “I can understand his stance from his point of view.
“He's in the prime of his career at 28, and wants to be playing first team football. Robert Earnshaw is playing so well and the manager is trying to sign a big striker so he can see his chances could be few and far between.
“But there are a lot of issues with Leon with his off the field problems last season and Norwich looked after him well.
“Maybe the manager feels a little bit disappointed with the way McKenzie has gone about things.”
