Norwich City fancy trumping Birmingham City for their trialist Njogu Demba-Nyren.

Blues have kept the identity of the 6ft 2in Gambia international, who played nine games for Notts County in League One at the end of last season but is now a free agent, a closely guarded secret.

Blues boss Chris Hughton ordered staff to keep the 32-year-old striker's name under wraps after he impressed and scored in a practice match against Tottenham last week.

But the Mirror says Demba-Nyren is the trialist after he told Birmingham players he favours a move to the Premier League Canaries.
