TOWN striker Paul Benson has been linked with a move to fellow League One side Portsmouth, and he could be replaced at the County Ground by Norwich forward Chris Martin.

The former Charlton man has fallen out of favour with manager Paolo Di Canio in recent weeks, and the Advertiser understands he has travelled to the south coast for talks.

The deal could potentially be a loan move with a view to a full transfer, although nothing has been completed at this stage.

Benson's move would free up space in the Town squad for Martin, who has only featured once for the Canaries in the Premier League this season.
