Centre-half Leon Barnett would love to make his loan move to Norwich permanent in the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old is enjoying an impressive loan spell from West Brom and grabbed his first goal for the Canaries to earn a 1-1 draw with Leeds at Carrow Road on Saturday. His loan expires on January 4 but boss Paul Lambert wants the player to stay - and Barnett would welcome the prospect too.

"I think I'd be stupid not to," he told the Evening News. "There are a lot of players who would love to come to Norwich and I'm one of them, so it's a possibility but we have to wait until January."

He added: "It's a great feeling and this is a massive team and we're going in the right direction.

"I think it's nice to be loved and if someone wants to take interest in you. But at the moment I've not heard anything and I have to wait until January and see what happens. I don't know what's going on."
