Norwich City boss Chris Hughton hopes to sign Leeds United striker Luciano Becchio by Thursday's transfer deadline.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has revealed that he hopes to sign Leeds United striker Luciano Becchio by Thursday's transfer deadline.

The Argentinian recently put in a transfer request at Elland Road and he could now join the Canaries in a deal that would see Steve Morison move the other way.

"The clubs are in discussion and that's one that I hope gets done," Hughton told Sky Sports News.

"Whether [Morison] has to be part of the deal or not, I don't know. That's what the talks are."

Becchio has scored 19 goals in all competitions for Leeds this season.
