Doncaster Rovers have admitted City's Jamie Cureton is on their list of targets.

Manager Sean O'Driscoll is still trying to add a new striker to his squad despite ending a run of 12 games without a win with last week's 1-0 victory over Ipswich.

O'Driscoll is still chasing Hull City striker Dean Windass on a possible loan move - but has also admitted an interest in Cureton and Charlton's England Under-21 striker, Izale McLeod.

Cureton, 33, last season's top scorer for the Canaries with 14 goals, said last week he would consider a loan move.

He said: “Me and the manager have spoken. We spoke about different bits and bobs, maybe if it was right to go on loan.

“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.”

Cureton has not scored since his hat-trick against former club Colchester in March and has not started a first team game for the Canaries since the 2-2 draw at Cardiff in August, when he missed a penalty.

He has been on the bench in every game but one since then, however, and was a second-half substitute for Arturo Lupoli in Saturday's 3-2 home defeat by Swansea.
