Nelson Oliveira set to return for Norwich against Barnsley

Norwich could have forward Nelson Oliveira available again following a calf problem for the Sky Bet Championship visit of Barnsley.

Striker Marley Watkins will be hoping to face his former club after making his international debut for Wales against Panama.

Midfielder Alex Tettey continues to recovery from a calf problem, while Alex Pritchard is set to step up his rehabilitation from ankle surgery along with Scotland forward Steven Naismith, who has been sidelined by his own ankle problem.

Defender Jamal Lewis (knee), winger Matt Jarvis (ankle) and midfielder Louis Thompson (Achilles) all remain unavailable.

Barnsley will be without winger Lloyd Isgrove, who sustained a knee injury in the recent home win against Birmingham.

Isgrove’s season was delayed until the end of October due to foot and thigh injuries and after being forced off last time he will not be ready for this weekend.

Midfielder Gary Gardner (leg) has returned to training but remains unavailable and defender Adam Jackson (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Head coach Paul Heckingbottom has no other new injury or suspension worries as the Reds chase a third straight league win.

Heckingbottom insists Sunderland have made no approach

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom has confirmed there has been no approach from Sunderland about their managerial vacancy.

Heckingbottom, 40, has emerged as the bookmakers’ favourite to succeed former Sunderland boss Simon Grayson, who was sacked at the end of October.

Former Sunderland trainee Heckingbottom told a press conference before Barnsley’s trip to Norwich on Saturday that the Black Cats had not made contact.

“I’ve been asked this question multiple times from everyone and I didn’t comment on it then either,” Heckingbottom said in quotes reported on Barnsley’s official Twitter feed.

“Nothing else enters my head. My focus is on my job and my players. I now have to be careful what I say as I have a conversation on something and quotes can be taken out of context.”

Heckingbottom, who had spells as a player at Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley and Bradford after leaving Sunderland without making a first-team appearance, was appointed as Lee Johnson’s replacement at Oakwell on a rolling 12-month contract in June 2016.

He had been installed as caretaker boss the previous January and went on to guide the Reds to victory in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final at Wembley and then promotion to the Championship via the play-offs.

Barnsley’s future remains uncertain after reports emerged in August of a proposed takeover by a consortium led by Chinese businessman Chien Lee, the majority stakeholder in Ligue 1 club Nice.

The Reds’ current owner, Patrick Cryne, is fighting cancer and revealed in an open letter to fans in September that he was “living on borrowed time”, but the club has remained tight-lipped about any takeover developments.

Sunderland chief executive Martin Bain has held talks with potential candidates, but the Sky Bet Championship club are understood to still be exploring their options.

Former Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka, Luton boss Nathan Jones, Ally McCoist and current Black Cats defender John O’Shea have all featured high in the bookmakers’ betting list of candidates for the vacancy.

Sunderland hunt continues amid Paul Heckingbottom claims

Sunderland are still to identify the man they want to take the club forward as they continue their search for a new manager.

Chief executive Martin Bain has held talks with potential candidates in recent days and the odds on Barnsley’s Paul Heckingbottom returning to the club where he was a trainee have tumbled to evens with some bookmakers.

However, it is understood Bain is still pondering a range of options for an appointment he simply cannot afford to get wrong after David Moyes and Simon Grayson both presided over disastrous spells at the Stadium of Light.

Heckingbottom is understood to be in the running, while former Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has been linked with the vacancy – although sources close to the Spaniard have distanced him from it – and Ally McCoist, who worked with Bain at Rangers, has also come under consideration.

But sources on Wearside have indicated that no appointment is imminent with the search having entered its third week, and that caretaker manager Robbie Stockdale could still be at the helm for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Millwall if there are no significant developments over the next 48 hours.

Grayson was sacked minutes after a 3-3 home draw with Bolton on October 31, and the managerless club currently sits at the foot of the table with just 10 points from its first 16 games.

Sunderland have not won a home league game since they beat Watford 1-0 in the Premier League on December 17 last year and were relegated in May having collected only 24 points.

Paper Talk: Rivals join Man Utd for Schalke forward; WBA?s 11m raid

Manchester City are considering a move for a long-term Manchester United target, while Tottenham are plotting a shock raid on Premier League neighbours Watford, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.



Manchester City have joined the long list of admirers of Schalke forward Breel Embolo, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims City are keeping a close eye on the striker and had scouts check on his performances for Switzerland as they edged past Northern Ireland to reach the World Cup finals.

The report doesn’t specify when City might make the move, but it’s presumed they are keeping an eye on the market amid concerns Sergio Aguero is ready to quit the club at the end of the season and return to La Liga, possibly with Real Madrid.

City’s neighbours United have had a long-term interest in the striker and were close to making a bid on him during his days at Basel.

Embolo since went on to sign for Schalke, where he has just returned to action after suffering a serious knee injury early on last season.

Wales call up Barnsley star as Norwich forward withdraws

Norwich striker Marley Watkins has been forced out of Wales’ World Cup qualifying squad due to injury.

Watkins, 26, will miss Wales’ last two Group D qualifiers, in Georgia and at home against the Republic of Ireland, and has been replaced by his former Barnsley team-mate Ryan Hedges.

“Marley Watkins has withdrawn from the Wales squad through injury and has been replaced by Barnsley striker Ryan Hedges,” the Wales Football Association confirmed.

“It represents a first senior call-up for Hedges, who has previously represented Wales at Under-19 and Under-21 level.”

Watkins, sent off after stepping off the bench in Norwich’s 2-1 win at Reading on Saturday, joined the club on a free transfer in June after rejecting a new deal at Barnsley.

“Gutted to have to pull out of the Wales squad with an injury. All the best to the boys for the next two games,” Watkins said on Twitter.
