Norwich boss Roeder chasing Man City striker Evans

Norwich City boss Glenn Roeder has confirmed his interest in Manchester City striker Ched Evans.

"I think Ched is on a lot of people's radar, but I think Mark (Hughes) has made it perfectly clear that until he gets somebody in, in a striking role he won't be letting any of his surplus strikers out," Roeder told The Pink'un.

Evans enjoyed a run of games at Eastlands at the start of the season but he has since had to make do with coming off the bench and trying to make an impact.

Roeder said: "I wouldn't be surprised that players like Ched, and there are only a few in this sort of position, clubs will try and sell them first.

"Then the loan becomes an option later in January, which is a nuisance because there are plenty of games to be played in January. I don't know officially if he's up for sale, but it would make sense because other people we've enquired for they have said 'you will have to wait and see'.

"He could become available on loan at the end of January but at the moment we would be looking for a sale. That doesn't apply to Ched, that's other enquiries I have made, but it wouldn't surprise me if they were thinking along the same lines.

"But I'm sure from Ched's point of view he will want to, and needs to, be playing senior football again. He got a lot of it here last year and he had a little bit of it at the beginning of the season at Manchester City."
