Exclusive: Norwich City rebuff Millwall's enquiry for Morison

MILLWALL have had an enquiry for former striker Steve Morison rebuffed by Norwich City, who have offered the 29-year-old to Leeds as part of a deal for Luciano Becchio.

A source in Norfolk has confirmed to NewsAtDen that the Lions made an approach earlier this week with a view to a loan move, but the Canaries are using Morison as bait to land Becchio.

That player-plus-cash switch is now edging closer to completion, meaning Kenny Jackett's hopes of re-signing the Wales international are fading fast ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline.



However, Jackett had reservations about the deal after learning that Morison has a hamstring niggle and was set to wait until the loan window opened next month before stepping up his interest.

Morison, who has scored ten goals in 53 appearances for Norwich since his £2.1million-transfrer to Carrow Road in June 2011, was understood to be keen on the idea of returning to The Den.

But Canaries boss Chris Hughton would rather offload the frontman's £14,000-a-week wages on a permanent basis if it aids his persuit of Becchio, who has demanded to leave Elland Road.



Jackett has admitted making enquiries for various strikers this week so Morison's unavailability will not come as a major blow and he is still hopeful of adding to his squad before the window shuts.

Asked after Millwall's 2-0 defeat to Barnsley whether he was planning to make any further signings, Jackett said: "Yeah, possibly. We're looking to strengthen if we can."

    What I have always quite admired about Jacket in the transfer market is the way in which he seems to have been a man with a plan. However this transfer window the plan seems to have gone out of the window a bit. The almost signing of Gary Madine seemed like classic Jacket, off the radar, young forward under achieving - but it wasn't to be (rightly so). After that it seems to have gone a bit mad...

    The signing of Tyson had more than a whiff of desperation about it. Letting Henderson go kind of made sense, but if letting Henderson go was part of a master-plan to snare Hulse I don't really get it. Now enquiring after Morison. Nothing wrong with that in itself - would be a good foil for Keogh I'd imagine - but were Norwich ever really going to go for it?

    I still imagine Kenny is going to get back to the plan again, bring in a premier league youngster who does well and who we are unlikely to be able to keep hold of - and all will be well again, but at the moment I don't think this is going to go down as a classic transfer window.

      The most intelligent comment I've read in a long time.
      I do feel somewhat sorry for Morison. He's just become a pawn in a game which is proof positive of players not always being able to control their own destiny. I'm sure that he would have come to Millwall rather than leeds but then again he wanted out according to Millwal. Or is it that we wouldn't pay the going rate for his wages? Hulse and Tyson both currently earn more than he wanted.
      Sad fact is that 90% of players that leave Millwall for 'better things' never realise their dreams.

    Don't believe this for a second! There's no way Norwich can be thinking Bechio is an improvement on Morison! Admittedly he hasn't set the prem alight but if Moro isn't getting a look on there then how is Bechio going to?! Personally I think it's be a quality move by KJ if he could get him back in!

    i think we could still be in the running to get Kane, there has been some rumours flying about. But nevertheless IN KENNY JACKETT I TRUST, and i think he will get us a good striker by the end of tomorrow. Kenny always says he isn't interested in making these kind of one's, but he makes the moves discreet.

    PS Sorry, do u have change for a fiver? 😉

        Ello pudding,
        I'm glad you've joined in cause you've brought me to me sences. What's it like having 25,000+ every week, loads of money to spend on players and paying em s*** loads and still not making the play offs, sure you wouldn't change a thing would you me olde LILLY savage. He might not come back to our S******* but I bet that SHITHOUSE manager of yours begs your MINGE of a Chelsea dwarf to pay over the odds so he can jump ship like the onion bargy wants to.

          Your bang on there mate apart from one thing, we don't even get 25000 we get less than 20000. On a serious note is this Morison any good?

            After what he done for us I would say yes he hasn't had much game time time at Norwich so will be glad to get a regular run out he's strong and knows where the goal is.
            Some including me are bemused with us signing hulse you had a few yrs back
            Was he any good for you's ?

    Good move; again goes to show what we are up against. I feel sorry for KJ, as he knows where we need re-inforcements, if he gets no one in he gets stick, if he brings in the people he can get right now he gets stick. If we got Morison, Hulse looks a reasonable back up. We have the best manager in our history, the best manager in our division, he has moved this club forward year on year, shows genuine affection for our club and has displayed loyalty, can't get who we (and HE) wants, loses a few games and some people turn on him. It was only a couple of games ago we were singing his name. Be careful what you wish for! In this day and age players come and go but if we lost KJ we'd be worse off - get behind him and the club!!!!! one Kenny Jackett, there's only one Kenny Jackett

    I hear Chelsea are looking for some more fans. They've got money to spunk up the wall, have players that come and go on big money and don't give a f*** about the club, change their manager every 3 months, and they win more often than we do. Me, personally, I'd rather train a rabid rat to chew my testicles off! Come on you Lions!!!!!!
