Norwich City left-back Jamal Lewis is being touted with Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

The Northern Ireland international has lost his place in the Canaries' starting line up to Sam Byram after initially dropping out of the side through injury earlier this season.

Lewis was again an unused substitute in Saturday's 1-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth and now the Sunday Mirror suggest he is on the Eagles' radar.

Palace would appear to be in the market for a left-back and have also been linked with Hearts' youngster Aaron Hickey in the weekend gossip columns.

The Canaries were touted with the Scottish teenager previously and only last week Villarreal left-back Xavi Quintilla was linked with a potential Carrow Road switch.

Lewis is under contract to the Canaries until 2023 and had established himself as first choice for club and country following a meteoric two seasons under Daniel Farke's guidance until Byram's arrival.

City's top brass have repeatedly made it clear they are under no financial pressure to sell any of their best talent in the January window as they try to pull off a survival mission.

Only on Friday, Farke outlined the full back areas was one of their priorities to bolster this month following the loan departure of Philip Heise, leaving Lewis, Byram and Max Aarons to battle for a place in the back four.
