You win some, you lose some, and eventually Norwich were going to sign a duff from Leeds - and Becchio seems to be it. Since his switch to Carrow Road, Norwich have been shite, but the Argentine has still seen very little game time. Like nutmeg in Delia Smith's shepherd's pie, he is the wrong ingredient for the wrong dish.
So if Norwich do survive another season in the Prem, what are they going to do with Becchio? One simple solution would be to loan him back to Leeds, paying a chunk of his wages to make the move possible.
The advantages to Leeds are obvious. The club get a proven goal scorer in the division on the cheap and a guy who knows his way around Elland Road, with plenty of friends in the team. Sure the fans may be a tad resentful at first, but if Becchio starts banging in the goals, all would be forgiven very quickly.
It may seem like an absurd proposition but Southampton signed Sharp for half a season and then, when it was clear that he was not Premiership standard, loaned him out to Forest, so the precedent has been set.
It would be a little embarrassing for Norwich, but why pay £25k a week to a guy to do nothing when they could pay £15k? Everyone's a winner!
