Norwich City are looking to ex-Manchester United winger Luke Chadwick to resolve their right-sided problems.
The 25-year-old Stoke City man has been earmarked by Canaries boss Nigel Worthington after an impressive first season at The Britannia Stadium.
The manager has been without an out-and-out wide man since Mark Rivers left Carrow Road in the Summer of 2004.
A number of players have been tried in that position, from Swedish international Mattias Jonson to Tottenham Hotspur's Dean Marney, but none have held down the role and now the manager has turned to Chadwick.
"It's been difficult, but we will continue to look and see what we can do," Worthington told the Pink'un.
"It is a situation that we can look to try and resolve, but it has been ongoing for the last couple of years.
"Luke Chadwick is a player that we quite like for the position. He can pass and he gets crosses in - we have enquired about him and we are waiting to see what happens."
Norwich will have to take into account the fact that The Potters paid £100,000 to West Ham United for the player's permanent signature in January and with two years left on his current deal, may well be reluctant to sell.
