Norwich City will turn their attentions towards Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster should their own No 1 John Ruddy leave the club for Chelsea this summer, reports the Scottish Sun.

The Cannaries are said to be preparing themselves for the possible exit of England international Ruddy to Stamford Bridge at some point during the close season, with the west London club already having had one initial offer of £5 million for the shot stopper rejected by Norwich.

However, it is thought that the Blues could return with an improved bid of £10m for Ruddy, an offer that the East Anglians would find hard to turn down.

If that were to happen, then Norwich head coach Chris Hughton will immediately make a move for the Hoops No 1, who has been at Celtic Park for the past three seasons now, having originally arrived in the east end of Glasgow from Newcastle United in Aug 2010.

And in the intervening period, the 25-year-old has gone to on prove himself to be one of the most impressive young keepers in Britain, featuring in 142 matches overall in all competitions for the Scottish Premier League giants, during which time he has kept an impressive 73 clean sheets.

However, the English goalkeeper really came to prominence during Celtic’s unexpected run all the way to the knockout phase of last season’s Uefa Champions League, and now the player could be set for a return to Carrow Road three years after he spent a season-long loan at the club.
