Kyle Lafferty: Tipped to make loan move to Leeds

Leeds are being tipped to secure the loan signing of Kyle Lafferty from Norwich in the coming days after the striker failed to secure a Deadline Day move away from Carrow Road.

The out-of-favour striker has made just three substitute appearances for the Canaries this season, scoring once.

Lafferty, who has been chased by Leeds since the summer, was close to joining Sion last week, but a move to the Swiss club broke down as the the 28-year-old decided to stay in England ahead of Euro 2016.

The striker will be in France for Northern Ireland’s first-ever European Championship campaign after scoring seven goals in qualifying for Michael O’Neill’s team.

But with game-time limited at Norwich he will have to secure a move away from Carrow Road to be in top shape for the tournament.

And according to talkSPORT championship club Leeds are planning to make a move for the striker and hope to tie up the move in the coming days.

The Whites have also been linked with Middlesbrough striker Kike and Fraizer Campbell of Crystal Palace, but it is understood that Lafferty is the name at the top of Steve Evans’ wanted list.
