The Premier League side, Swindon Town, are hoping to be at the top of the line when Norwich City allows Tyrese Omotoye to get his first taste of loans this month.

It is Sunday, according to The Sun. the 18-year-old striker on the verge of getting his biggest share of senior action yet when replacing City in Saturday’s 1-0 FA Cup defeat in Barnsley.

On injuries to Jordan Hugill and Adam Idah, the Belgian-born teenager rose to the higher ranks towards the end of last year, providing cover for Teemu Pukki and making three short championship cameos.

He was on the bench in all of the Canaries’ last 14 games after closing Started the season at under 23, scoring seven goals in 12 games – including a hat-trick in a striking 5-0 win over League Two Side Newport County’s Papa John’s Trophy.

That advance earned Omotoye one n signed a new contract until 2024 just before Christmas and on Saturday he replaced the injured Hugill in the 65th minute. He showed a lot of speed and strength but didn’t get much from the ball.

Hugill’s hamstring anxiety came with Teemu Pukki sidelined for a third game and Republic of Ireland international Idah still recovering from a knee injury and a period of Covid-19 isolation – but both Pukki and Idah will return before training home game against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The bigger angle for Omotoye is the recall of US international Sebastian Soto earlier this week after the 20-year-old newcomer scored seven goals in 12 games for Dutch second division Telstar in the summer.

That earned two senior internationals, and the Canary Islands have recalled the talented striker believing they are about to to get a work permit for the former Hannover striker.

It is believed that City head coach Daniel Farke wants to take a close look at Soto during training before deciding whether the American or Omotoye should be loaned out before the end of the Janaury transfer window – although bad news about Hugill’s hamstring could affect that decision.

Sun transfer rumor specialist Alan Nixon claims Omotoye is Swindon boss John Sheridan’s « first choice ». The Robins were promoted from the second division last season and are in second place, but it’s a close relegation battle with the six teams within three points above them.

They did the chase on Saturday played by Charlton with a 2-2 draw. Former Norwich Academy striker Diallang Jaiyesimi scored the second goal after being loaned out at County Ground last season and finally joining after being sacked by Norwich. The 22-year-old has four goals and two assists for his name so far this season.

Sheridan is a former Oldham Athletic team-mate of Canarian loaner Neil Adams, while Swindon’s owner and chairman is former city striker Lee Power, who is between Scored 10 goals in 48 games for Norwich in 1990 and 1994 after going through the club’s youth system.

VERDICT: A move that would surely tick a lot of boxes for everyone involved – but Swindon may have to be up by the end of the month A decision awaiting.

If Hugill’s hamstring injury becomes severe, City will likely need both Omotoye and Soto, whose work permits are also yet to be confirmed.

If that injury isn’t a huge problem, it is for one of the young strikers makes sense to be loaned out, and after Omotoye has only had a small taste of senior activities this season t, it seems like a good next step for Omotoye to try this Enter.
