Chris Martin: Will see his contract at Norwich expire at the end of the season

The striker would appear to be surplus to requirements at Carrow Road, having been allowed to rejoin the Rams and with Ricky van Wolfswinkel set to bolster the Canaries' attacking options in the summer.

Norwich do, however, hold the option to extend Martin's contract by a further 12 months at the end of the season, should they so wish.

Martin is eager to know what the Premier League outfit have planned for him, but appreciates he may have to wait until the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

"I cannot really afford to concern myself with it too much because you can end up worrying about things like that, so I'm just going to try and enjoy the next eight games," Martin told the Derby Telegraph.

"Hopefully, something gets sorted quickly once the end of the season comes."

For now, Martin is focused on events at Pride Park, with the 24-year-old delighted to have been offered the opportunity to take in regular games in the Championship with Derby.

He added: "I'm glad it has been sorted out and now I can look forward to the games coming up and, hopefully, helping the team to a few more wins.

"I have got used to waiting on decisions and things in the last couple of seasons with going out on loan, but obviously I don't want it to carry on for too much longer."
