San Jose's Huckerby considers Norwich return

San Jose Earthquakes striker Darren Huckerby could be swayed back to England. The 33-year old has been linked with a return to his former club and said fitness permitting, he would definitely consider a move back to Carrow Road.

"By the time that I could play for Norwich I'd be nearly 34 and with a slightly dodgy hip," he told the Norwich Evening News.

"I've got certain standards that I set myself and I would want to be able to meet them while playing for Norwich. I will do whatever is best for Norwich City at the end of the day. Money wouldn't be the issue. If I can't go out there and inspire the fans then there's no point being on the pitch.

"The MLS season finishes in November and we'll see where it goes from there. I've not thought about what may happen much past November really but I have three options. I either stay in the MLS, play for Norwich or retire. They are the three options right now but we'll have to see.

"I would like to see my association with Norwich last for the next 15 to 20 years and I'd like to be involved in the youth set-up, helping bring players through into the first team. The youth set-up will be key for Norwich's future and it's important that they get it right."
