Norwich City are flying high in the Championship under manager Daniel Farke ahead of the weekend trip to Bristol City, with the Canaries a point clear of Leeds United at the top of the table.
For Farke, the first half of the season could not have gone much better and he will be planning now for the January transfer window, to bring in the recruits who can help to maintain their promotion push.
One player not in Farke’s plans is striker Steven Naismith who is currently on loan at SPFL side Hearts, a loan move that the 32-year-old hopes can become permanent in the summer, according to Edinburgh Live.
So would Norwich be making a mistake selling Naismith permanently?
Not for me, the club are heading in a different direction under Farke, which is fair enough.
We know Naismith is a quality forward, but he doesn’t fit into what Farke’s trying to do at Carrow Road.
All parties seem happy at the moment.
No, they should cash in as soon as they can.
Use the money wisely, Farke has proven how astute he is in the market
Naismith has had his time in England, he needs a move back to Scotland where his talents are more suited.
Let Norwich move forward too.
They are top of the Championship; does it look like they miss him?
I think Steve Naismith’s time at Carrow Road is up, regardless of if Norwich go up or stay down.
I don’t think Daniel Farke is making a mistake either, he is building a squad – a younger, more dynamic squad – and Naismith doesn’t fit those plans.
If he had, he wouldn’t have been loaned out in the first place.
I don’t think they’d be making a mistake.
I just don’t see where Naismith would fit in at Norwich given how impressive they have been this season.
I’d sell him and generate some funds from his sale
