My judgement from what I have seen at this early stage of the season is that we are in desperate need of a striker and creative midfielder.

The midfield at the moment is very workman like and we need to add a creative player to provide more clear cut chances to our strikers.

My choice would be Jacob Butterfield. There`s no chance that he is in Norwich`s plans and he will almost certainly be loaned out to a Championship club. This proved unsuccessful last season so if Norwich want to make anything of Butterfield then they would be best served sending him to Barnsley where Flitcroft will get him playing back at his best.

As for a striker, forget the mould of what Flicker requires of all players in his squad, what we need now is an out and out goal scorer and I don`t care if he is the laziest player in the world as long he will pop up with 15 to 20 goals this season.

Of all the players we have been linked with then Billy Sharp is the man I would like the most. I do however feel he will be out of our price range but I think it would be worth offering as much as we possibly can to try and lure him to Oakwell.
