Norwich City are reportedly monitoring Harrison Reed’s situation at Southampton according to The Sun on Sunday (28th April page 54) and reported by HITC Sport.
Reed spent last season on loan at Norwich and spent this season on loan at Blackburn Rovers where he played 33 games and scored three goals before injury cut his season short, meaning he couldn’t play against City on Saturday evening.
The 2-1 win over Rovers at Carrow Road sealed promotion to the Premier League for the Canaries and means that, along with Sheffield United who were promoted on Sunday after Leeds drew with Aston Villa, they can start planning with certainty for the top flight.
Reed is a Southampton Academy graduate but failed to impress the Saints then manager, Mark Hughes enough to be considered for the first team and was loaned out again last summer.
Hughes’ replacement, Ralph Hasenhuttl will no doubt take stock of his squad over the summer and then decide who he wants to keep and who he wants to let go. Should Reed be one in the latter category, then The Sun reckon he’d be a loan target for Norwich.
Personally, I’m not so sure.
Reed is a good player, there’s no doubt about that but is he better than Tom Trybull, Alex Tettey or Louis Thompson? It’s a question that could easily be debated but I’m not sure, not for me.
