Canaries swoop for Welsh Dragon

Canaries swoop for Welsh Dragon

The local press in Norwich have today linked Albion striker Rob Earnshaw with a £3.5 million move to Carrow Road.

Norwich want the Welshman to replace the space left by former striker Dean Ashton who signed for West Ham earlier in the week.

Earnshaw has fallen out with Baggies boss Bryan Robson due to his lack of starts this season after finishing last season as top scorer.

Robson has been unimpressed with Earnie's attitude in recent weeks and has asked the striker to work on his build up play.

Where others have taken this on board and improved their game, Earnshaw has not done himself any favours with outbursts in the press and his attitude whilst playing. The striker receiving an angry reaction from fans in the recent FA Cup defeat at Reading as he walked over to take an extra time corner as the Baggies were on their way out of the cup.

This left Robson with no choice but to drop Earnshaw completely from the next game drafting in rookie Stuart Nicholson.

Earnshaw was linked with Southampton earlier in the transfer window but Earnie was reluctant for a move to the Championship.

With the end of the transfer window drawing ever closer Earnshaw may have to reconsider his options, either he moves to a Championship club with a chance of promotion, or he spends the rest of the season in the Baggies reserves and improves his attitude enough for Robson to pick him.

Earnshaw has been linked with Everton and Wigan in recent weeks but they both look as if they are choosing to move onto other targets.
