Norwich City are reportedly willing to send striker Jordan Hugill out on loan next season, with a number of Championship clubs interested in signing him.
The Lowdown: Hugill a fringe player at Norwich
The Canaries won the Championship title in style last season, sealing a triumphant return to the Premier League in the process.
Hugill was a fringe player throughout the campaign, however, managing just seven league starts and scoring only four goals in 31 appearances in the competition.

The Latest: Striker set to be loaned out
It now looks as though the 29-year-old will be staying put in the second tier of English football, with Sunday Mirror journalist Darren Witcoop taking to Twitter to say that the striker will be sent out on loan in 2021/22.
There is claimed to be ‘no shortage of interest‘ in Hugill, who is valued at £1.8million by Transfermarkt.

While Hugill would no doubt love to try his luck in the Premier League, it benefits all parties for him to find another club this summer.
Norwich need a higher calibre of backup striker if they want to remain in the top-flight, while the attacker will surely be happier earning regular football.
He has proved his worth in the Championship over a sustained period, scoring 46 goals in 207 appearances, showing that is where he belongs.
