Striker Jamie Cureton has admitted he has spoken to his manager about a possible loan move in the search for regular football.

The 33-year-old has made just three starts this season and has found himself on the periphery of the action as the season has worn on.

But although the former Colchester United front man wants to get some competitive football under his belt, it would only be with the aim of making sure he was in the best possible shape to make an impact when called upon at Carrow Road.

“Me and the manager have spoken; we spoke about different bits and bobs, maybe if it was right to go on loan,” said Cureton. “No clubs were mentioned, it was just a chat between me and him and if it was best for me and the club that, when I am called upon, if I've been out playing it might be better.

“The gaffer understood my feelings and we just left it really. He was happy to have me here but at the same time if the right sort of thing comes up, then we would both look at it and go from there.

“I've trained as well as I have since he's been here and that's been the frustrating thing. I know I'm training well and it's just waiting for a chance. I would rather be doing well for Norwich than anyone else, so hopefully I'll get that opportunity against Swansea.”

With Leroy Lita coming in from Reading and helping himself to five goals in seven starts, Cureton sees a similar move for him

could also have a positive effect and ensure Roeder has an in-form striker to call upon when needed.

“That was my thinking,” added the striker. “That if I'm out of the side now, maybe if I go somewhere and I'm playing and scoring, when I am needed I've been doing that. The longest I've played was on Saturday, which was 55 minutes, which was a bit of a shock to the system.”

“I just went in and made a suggestion, not going in saying I wanted to go away but asking the question do you think it would be a good idea, and we had a long chat about it.

“I need to be playing, that's what I enjoy doing, so it was just a thing that I put to him and we had a decent conversation about it. I think he wants me around. He feels I can still play a part in this season, so I'm more than happy to do that.

“If I get in the team and stay in the team, I'd be more than happy with that.”
