Norwich’s Chris Martin extends Derby County loan
CHRIS Martin will rejoin Derby County on loan from Norwich City.
The Rams have agreed in principle with Norwich for the striker to spend the rest of the season at Pride Park.
The paperwork will be completed next week.
Martin's initial one-month loan ended after Saturday's home victory over Leicester City in which he scored his first goal for the club.

He has made a positive impact in his five games and manager Nigel Clough has praised the player's contribution.
Clough is delighted that Martin is to return.
"It's great news," said Clough, "and we will be delighted if he is with us for the rest of the season."
Clough also hinted at the possibility of a permanent deal for next season.
"We are looking at maybe beyond his loan, we'll see," he said.
Martin is out of contract at Carrow Road in the summer, although Norwich have a one-year option on him. He is not in their 25-man Premier League squad.
Craig Forsyth has two more games against Bristol City on Good Friday and Leeds United on Easter Monday before his loan spell from Watford expires.
Derby are likely to look at extending his stay.
"We would like to keep Craig and continue to look at him," said Clough.
Two of Forsyth's three appearances have been on the left side of midfield and the other was at left-back in the Leicester game when he filled in for the injured Gareth Roberts.
