Norwich City have joined the interest in Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard.

The Sunday Mirror says Norwich have checked out Bristol City top-scorer Maynard, who has refused to sign a new contract.

Canaries boss Paul ­Lambert was one of a dozen coaches who sent scouts to see Maynard poach a winner against Millwall.

City declined a £4m summer bid from Leicester and won't let him go cheaply.
