Leeds United inching closer to sealing deal for Premier League striker, talks held



Leeds United are in talks with Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty, according to BBC Sport


The 28-year-old has been unable to force his way into the first-team at Carrow Road and has made just two appearances for the Canaries this season, scoring once in a 3-0 win over West Brom in the Capital One Cup in September.

But the striker has been on fire for his country, scoring seven times as the Northern Ireland side booked their place at the European Championships in France this summer – their first major tournament in three decades.

According to the Belfast Telegraphthe striker is set to join the Elland Road outfit in a six-month loan deal with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

Lafferty, who began his career at Burnley before enjoying a four-year spell at Rangers, joined Norwich in June 2014 for an undisclosed fee from Italian side Palermo but has scored just twice in 22 appearances in all competitions.

Whites manager Steve Evans has been keen to bolster his side in the transfer window as his side sit in 13th place in the Championship with 32 points from 25 matches, and are unbeaten in their last seven games.

Leeds face Rotherham United, managed by former favourite Neil Redfearn, at Elland Road this weekend in the FA Cup third round.
