Darren Huckerby could be heading into a trans-Atlantic tug-of-war for his services.

The 32-year-old was axed by Norwich manager Glenn Roeder last week and is being linked with a whole host of new challenges after his four-and-a-half years at Carrow Road, with a move overseas looking the favourite.

Huckerby has already been rumoured to be heading for Toronto, who are in their second season in Major League Soccer, with reports at the weekend claiming San Jose Earthquakes are also interested.

However, Toronto would appear to have the advantage - they already have former Norwich team-mates Jim Brennan and Carl Robinson, who are currently captain and vice-captain respectively - on their books and, according to the report, have first refusal on the player.

While Huckerby's future appears to be outside the English leagues, it hasn't prevented speculation linking him with another domestic move.

Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday are said to be in the frame - despite the fact that Huckerby says he won't switch to a rival Championship club.
