Steven Naismith will join Hearts on loan in the next 48 hours according to the Daily Record

Presumably the loan will be for the rest of the season, with Naismith clearly keen to be playing regularly and Norwich just as keen to shift his salary off the wage bill.

The former Kilmarnock and Rangers forward is rumoured to be City`s highest paid player but he hasn`t featured for the first team since an early Carabao Cup excursion last August. He`s been injured since getting crocked by Grant Hanley in training last September but has been fit for weeks now.

Neither of those two former clubs seem to have been actively after him, despite media speculation, which the player confirmed himself, last week.

Should this deal come off then it will mean that Stuart Webber will have managed to shift over £100k per week off the Norwich wage bill, in the last week alone. That`s over £5m a year, by my rudimentary mathematics.

  • True. Only loans and ideally we need to get fees in summer but it looks like
    he and Martin will be given away.

  • think you’re a little optimistic… With Naismith on c.£40k per week, there is no way Hearts are paying anywhere near all of that.
    £10k per week maybe a little more… the rest will still be coming out of Canary coffers

  • Scorfix you forget that a loan fee will also be involved as well as a wage cut. I’d say it’s a net zero outlay for NCFC.
