Norwich City Weigh Up Bid for In-Form Scottish Striker

Leigh Griffiths

Canaries keen on Wolves striker.

Norwich boss Chris Hughton is weighing up a January move for Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths.

His good form resulted in senior international recognition earlier this month as he made his Scotland debut in their 2-1 win in Luxembourg.

The 22-year-old began his career at Livingston, where he made his first-team bow at just 16, before moving to Dundee.


Chris Hughton may well be keen on improving his striking options having seen his Canaries side manage just ten goals in 13 Premier League fixtures and the Norwich City boss may well feel that Leigh Griffiths has what it takes to make it in the English top tier.

The 22 year old striker is currently on loan to Hibernian from Championship side Wolves and has racked up a thoroughly impressive 13 goals in 13 SPL games this season, form that has led to his first senior Scottish national team call-up.

Grant Holt, Norwich City’s usual source of goals, hasn’t netted in six matches and alternative option Steve Morison hasn’t been in the best of form either so any move to offer more support to the East Anglian side’s attack would be wise and perhaps Griffiths can be picked up for a relatively small fee.
