LUFC Hughton confirms Becchio and Morison talks

LUFC Hughton confirms Becchio and Morison talks

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has confirmed that Norwich City are in talks with Leeds about a swap deal involving Luciano Becchio and Steve Morison.

Leeds 19-goal leading goalscorer Becchio slapped in a transfer request last week after enquiries from both home and abroad.

Hughton is hopeful that a deal can be done today to take Becchio to Carrow Road. Speaking on BBC Radio Leeds, Hughton said, "The clubs are speaking at the moment so it is one I hope we will be able to do, so that will give us a freshness.

"He is a player that is in good form at the moment and a player that is scoring goals, so I hope it is a deal that can be done."


Hughton also confirmed that Norwich striker Steve Morison would be used as part of the deal, with Morison joining Leeds. When asked if Morison was part of the deal, Hughton said, "At this moment, that is what the talks are, so we just hope it is all successful."

The Welsh international striker has netted 12 times in 59 appearances since a £2.8 million move from Millwall in 2010.

Morison was a prolific goalscorer at Millwall, netting 40 times in 95 appearances for the New Den side. He also had a great goalscoring return at Stevenage before signing for Millwall. Morison netted 76 times in 142 appearances during his time with Stevenage.
