Luciano Becchio's agent says that his client is preparing to stay with Norwich City.

The agent of Luciano Becchio has reportedly told an English newspaper that his client is unlikely to leave Norwich City before tonight's 11pm deadline.

Following Johan Elmander's arrival at Carrow Road last week, it was expected that Argentine Becchio would leave the club, with Middlesbrough a potential destination.

However, the 29-year-old's representative, Horacio Rossi, has told the Daily Mail that Becchio is prepared to "fight for a place" at Norwich.

"So far, Becchio is going to stay in Norwich to fight for a place. If there is any change I will let you know," said Rossi.

Becchio joined Norwich from Leeds United in January.
