Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty seems set to stay at Norwich until January at least after Canaries manager Alex Neil said no more players would be leaving on loan.

The out of favour striker - who has attracted interest from Leeds United - is eager to gain more playing time ahead of Euro 2016 but Neil has stated that Norwich will not loan out any more players until the January transfer window.

“Nobody else will be leaving on loan or otherwise until January, and then we can assess the situation,” Neil told BBC Radio Norfolk.

“We’ve got a lot of games coming up that are important.”

Norwich travel to Chelsea on Saturday to take on Jose Mourinho’s beleaguered Blues at Stamford Bridge and are one position above the Premier League champions in 15th place.

The Canaries have only managed one win in their last six away games but Neil is hoping to capitalise on Chelsea’s below-par form.

“We certainly don’t want to be the ones that get the backlash,” he said.
