City boss Paul Lambert admits he may have to look for another goalkeeper in the summer.

With Fraser Forster's loan from Newcastle up at the end of the season and his parent club back in the Premier League, the Canaries' chances of re-signing him, even on loan, may be slim.

Forster's form has not only enhanced his chances of senior involvement at St James' Park, but is also bound to have caught the eye of other clubs.

The 19-year-old Declan Rudd was set to make his seventh senior appearance against MK Dons today as Forster completed a two-match ban after his red card at Tranmere on Good Friday.

Lambert knows Forster's performances have brought him wider attention.

He said: 'If people cast an eye over him there is nothing we can do about that. He's a Newcastle player, but for me he has been terrific.'
