The Argentine has struggled to force his way into the starting line-up at Carrow Road having joined the club from Leeds United in the winter of 2013.

Neil has an array of striking options and Lewis Grabban, Cameron Jerome and Gary Hooper have all been in emphatic form of late, and the recently appointed Canaries boss has said that a temporary move would be good for all parties.

Neil told the EDP24 ‘He is just training with the squad at the minute but I think I have better options at this moment in time for the striking positions.

‘Potentially I wouldn’t be against letting him go out on loan to get some much needed game-time. It is something we have looked at but nothing has come up for him as of yet.

The news from the City camp is bound to alert several Championship clubs and Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest and Leeds United have all admitted interest in Becchio previously.

The 31-year-old has failed to score in his 16 starts for Norwich but he was prolific in his time at Leeds netting 75 goals in 190 appearances.

The Canaries currently sit in fifth position in the table, having accumulated 56 points thus far from 32 league games.
