Striker Arturo Lupoli has again been linked with a move from the Canaries to fellow Championship strugglers Southampton.
The 21-year-old regained his place in the City starting line-up for the last two matches of Glenn Roeder's reign as manager after scoring the equaliser in the FA Cup at Charlton a fortnight ago, when he came on as a substitute.
Before that trip to The Valley, the Italian talked of quitting Norwich if he didn't get first team football and was linked with Serie A clubs Sampdoria and Torino.

Unconfirmed reports in Italy claimed Lupoli's agents were in talks with Southampton yesterday, though sources on the South Coast suggest manager Jan Poortvliet will be unable to bring in new faces without trimming his squad, especially after the return of high earner Marek Saganowski to St Mary's Stadium. The Polish international is back from a loan spell with Danish side Aalborg to boost Southampton's strike force.
Lupoli joined City from Fiorentina for the season in July, though as an overseas player, it was not on a conventional loan deal but a one-year contract. He has scored five times for the club in 17 appearances.
