Norwich City boss Paul Lambert is ready to boost his defensive ranks with a bid for Exeter City defender Danny Seaborne.

It is believed the Scot is poised to make his move for the 22-year-old after seeing his back line hit by injury during the past few weeks.

Michael Spillane joined Michael Nelson and Jon Otsemobor on the injured list for a few weeks after injuring his hamstring during the 5-1 victory against Bristol Rovers, while left-back Rhoys Wiggins - who made his debut at Gillingham last night - is still short of match fitness after his summer move from Crystal Palace.

And although Gary Doherty has been called back into the first team picture, Lambert was without a defender among his seven substitutes during the win at Carrow Road, and midfielder Korey Smith was forced to fill in at right-back after Spillane limped off in the second half. But now City will attempt to secure a deal with the Grecians - initially on loan, but with a likely view to making it permanent in the January transfer window.

Seaborne did not play against the Canaries in the 1-1 draw at St James' Park in August, but has been a key figure in the Grecians' rise to League One from the Conference in the past two seasons. He stands 6ft tall and can play either left-back or centre-back.
