Cureton Prefers Canaries Over U`s

Cureton Prefers Canaries Over U`s

Jamie Cureton has voiced a come and get me plea to Norwich City boss Peter Grant.

Cureton the divisions top scorer of last season is desperate to leave Colchester United stating that he would be delighted to go back to the club where he started his career.

"If Norwich are interested I would obviously be keen talk to them, definitely" said Cureton yesterday. "It's all down to Colchester and Norwich and whether or not they can do business.

"I have always said Norwich would be my preference because it is where I started as a kid and I owe them a lot and at the same time I probably did not do myself justice in the first team. If given the opportunity I would like to have another crack and do things differently.

"If the opportunity comes up I would be very interested. It is a club that is close to my heart and being a big club in the division is an added bonus. Career wise it would be very good I would be over the moon if I received a call - but it's speculation at the moment."

Canaries boss Peter Grant is in the market for a new striker, however Cureton believes that Colchester are pricing him out of the market by demanding £750,000 for his services.

"I think £750,000 is too much," he said. "If they got £500,000 I think they would have done very, very well. I went to Colchester on a free transfer and I think the club is in a position where they ought to come down on the fee.

"But I have always said you are only worth what another club is prepared to pay. It is now up to Colchester and what they really want, what they feel is a good price for me.

"We shall see what that is - I just hope the fee is not outrageous and a club can put a bid in and we can take it from there."

Glad that's sorted then! He clearly has an affinity with the Canaries!

Yes; he decribed them as a "special club". He also had the unique tag of for a sub scoring the fastest goal in the Premeirship from the bench in 1996. Held in until 2003, i think.

would be interesting if City get Curo, Eastwood and Billy Sharp - that'd be a good strikefore for them!
