West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans has extended his loan deal with Norwich City until May 25.

The 27-year-old has been at Carrow Road since February, after seeing a permanent move break down in January.

Dorrans will now be able to feature in the play-offs, should Norwich require them.

“I’m really pleased we’ve got Graham on board to the end of the season. When he first came here he needed some match time, but he’s got better game-by-game.

As a player, he’s got a football brain, he can get about the pitch, he’s physically strong and he can carry out a variety of roles within the team. He’s very versatile, which is ideal for a manager.

Between now and the end of the season, his progress in terms of his dominance in games will only continue.”

– Alex Neil, Norwich City manager

Norwich City have missed out on the loan signing of Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom, with the forward joining Nottingham Forest instead.

The Canaries had been heavily linked with a move for the England under 20s star, and were said to have held talks with him last weekend.

However, Akpom has now moved to the City Ground until May 31.

The news comes as a blow for Norwich who are looking for extra firepower to cover for the loss of injured forward Lewis Grabban ahead of tonight's 5pm loan deadline.

Norwich City are reportedly set to miss out on the loan signing of highly rated Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 19-year-old will join Nottingham Forest instead because Gunners boss Arsène Wenger believes that the youngster will get more first team action at the City Ground.

It had looked as though Norwich were the favourites to land Akpom after he apparently held talks with the club over the weekend.

The news would come as a blow for the Canaries who are looking for extra firepower to cover for the loss of injured forward Lewis Grabban ahead of tomorrow's loan deadline.

Norwich City winger Josh Murphy has joined fellow Championship side Wigan Athletic on a month's loan.

The 20-year-old was part of the Canaries under 18s side that won the FA Youth Cup in 2013, and has featured in the first team on a number of occasions in the past two seasons.

Murphy could make his Wigan debut in tomorrow's game against high-flying Watford.

Wigan are managed by former Norwich defender Malky Mackay.

“Josh will be another great addition to what is still a small squad here.

He is a great young talent and we thank Norwich for allowing this to happen.

Hopefully Josh can make a successful contribution during his time with us and we’re delighted to have him on board.”

– Malky Mackay, Wigan Athletic Manager

Josh's twin brother Jacob also moved out on loan last week, joining Colchester United.

Norwich City defender Michael Turner has joined fellow Championship side Fulham on loan until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old only signed a new two-year contract at Norwich back in August, but has fallen out of favour since new manager Alex Neil arrived at the club.

Turner will not be eligible to face the Canaries on the final day of the season when Fulham visit Carrow Road.

Norwich City's Wes Hoolahan has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad to take on Poland later this month, despite the fact that he was originally omitted from the official squad list that was handed out to journalists.

There was confusion in Dublin when the midfielder's name was missing from the original 34-man party, but a new version was quickly re-issued - this time with Hoolahan included.

Ireland boss Martin O'Neil said that the exclusion was a "genuine accident".

Norwich City could be set to miss out on the loan signing of Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes.

The Canaries have been linked with a move for the former Ipswich Town man, but reports in the North East claim that he'll join promotion rivals Middlesbrough instead.

The news comes after Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer suggested yesterday that the Scottish International wouldn't be allowed to leave Ewood Park.

Derby County and Nottingham Forest have also been credited with an interest in Rhodes.

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer says that striker Jordan Rhodes will not be leaving the club on loan, despite the former Ipswich Town man being linked with a move to Norwich City.

Newspaper reports had suggested that the Canaries were interested in taking the prolific forward on loan for the rest of the season with a view to a permanent deal in the summer, but those rumours have been quashed by Bowyer.

Midlands rivals Derby County and Nottingham Forest have also been linked with a move for Rhodes but Bowyer says that the Scottish international will be staying put.

"I don't even understand why we would consider loaning Jordan.'
