Big boys in for Lita?

Norwich target Leroy Lita could prove out of reach after all as Premier League sides have started to show an interest in the Reading striker.

Former England under-21 striker Lita has been a success on loan at Carrow Road and is reported to be available for as little as £350,000. Everton, who have seen Louis Saha, Yakubu and James Vaughan all sidelined for the next few weeks, and Newcastle, who could lose Michael Owen in January, are now both being linked with a bargain swoop.

Lita played all of Reading's 2-0 FA Cup defeat at Cardiff yesterday, his first appearance since his loan spell at Norwich ended.
