Leon Barnett: Set to leave Norwich this summer

Canaries boss Chris Hughton revealed over the weekend he was prepared to let Barnett leave Carrow Road this summer.

The 27-year-old still has a year to run on his contract at Norwich, but he does not figure in Hughton's long-term plans.

The news has alerted a host of clubs to Barnett's availability with the defender impressing during a successful loan spell at Cardiff last season.

Doncaster are keen to lure Barnett to the Keepmoat Stadium as Paul Dickov looks to assemble a squad capable of competing in the Championship next season.

A number of other Premier League and Championship clubs are also thought to be weighing up moves for the former West Brom man.
