Wycombe boss Peter Taylor admitted he was in the hunt for City's first summer signing, highly-rated midfielder Matt Gill. Taylor had been courting the 28-year-old out-of-contract Exeter midfielder but, after holding talks with both clubs, Gill chose the Canaries instead.

Wycombe boss Peter Taylor admitted he was in the hunt for City's first summer signing, highly-rated midfielder Matt Gill. Taylor had been courting the 28-year-old out-of-contract Exeter midfielder but, after holding talks with both clubs, Gill chose the Canaries instead.

"He would have been a very good signing for us," said Taylor. "If Norwich hadn't come in for him I think he would have been a Wycombe player. But Norwich is a big club and he comes from Norfolk, so as soon as they got their house in order I thought they would get him. It is a blow because I wanted another confident footballer in the team."
