Norfolk’s own Norwich City FC has had an opening tough time in the Championship.

The aim at the start of the season for Norwich was to challenge for the promotion places but lying deep in midtable on position 15 at the midway point of the season means there is much to be done if the club wants to finish in a respectable position where it can challenge for promotion. One way to alter change is through the January transfer window opening on January 1. You can stay updated with Norwich City transfer dealings during the course of the window via

Jordan Jones

Top of Norwich City’s transfer wish list is Kilmarnock winger, Jordan Jones. The pacey Northern Ireland winger has been in fine form recently helping to chip in with some crucial goals for his country. At 23, Jones has already made over 10 appearances for his country and was given included by the manager, Martin O’Neil in their crunch World Cup play-off qualifier against the Swiss. Jones’ fine form has also alerted other clubs including English Premier League team, Burnley and Scottish giants, Rangers.

Ben Woodburn

Ben Woodburn has already notified Liverpool that he wants a loan move away from Anfield during the January transfer window and it is believed manager, Jurgen Klopp has assured him that he will be allowed to leave. The teenage Liverpool striker has shown flashes of brilliance in the few minutes he has been on the pitch and getting a call-up to the squad at 18 is a testament to his qualities. Norwich City have stated their desire to bring the Liverpool prodigy to Carrow Road but face competition from four other Championship teams.

Jon Nolan

Jon Nolan has been at the heart of Shrewsbury FC’s remarkable season so far in League 1 as they push for promotion. Playing alongside Norwich City loanee, Ben Godfrey, Nolan has gained a reputation in League 1 as a combative box-to-box midfielder who does not shy away from hard tackles. He also chips in with some crucial goals as he did last Saturday scoring the winner against Blackpool.

Sam Morsy

Sam Morsy is another midfield option the Canaries are looking at. Morsy is a deep-lying midfielder who likes to sit just in front of the back four. He has been a key figure so far for Wigan in their fight for promotion. In Morsy, Norwich will get a man who will be eager to perform and impress, as he wants to cement his place in the Egypt National Team going to the World Cup in Russia.
