Canaries boss gives transfer clue
Paul Lambert admitted his transfer budget is unlikely to be much bigger than last summer when he signed eight players.
Lambert's main capture was striker Steve Morison from Millwall for £2.8million while he also spent a slightly smaller fee on James Vaughan from Everton.
Anthony Pilkington (Huddersfield, £2m), Daniel Ayala (Liverpool, undisclosed), Elliott Bennett (Brighton, undisclosed) and Bradley Johnson (Leeds, free) were joined by Ritchie De Laet and Kyle Naughton on loan from Manchester United and Spurs respectively.
But, despite adding Ryan Bennett and Jonny Howson in January, Lambert wants to buy again and it is thought that the backline has become a priority area to strengthen.
"Finance dictates a lot," said the City boss.
"We have to watch and see what's going to happen. Will the budget be substantially bigger? No, not really. We'll have to work with what we've got. Once the season finishes, I'll know hopefully Norwich will be safe and then we'll see."
