League One club Brentford are reported to be keen to sign City defender Michael Spillane.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international made 16 first team appearances for the Canaries last season, but was missing for four months with a hamstring injury.

There were highlights however, including his first senior goal in the

4-0 home win over Leyton Orient - voted City's goal of the season - and memorable outings in the victories over Charlton and Gillingham that clinched promotion, and then the League One title.

Spillane, 21, played mostly at right-back on his return to the club after a year on loan at Luton, where he helped the Hatters win the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
