Another player to be linked with a spell at Norwich is striker Nile Ranger.
Both players are highly rated by Newcastle United manager Chris Hughton, and although this would be Forster's second spel with the Canaries, Hughton has no intention of selling him;
'The decision has not 100 per cent been made,' said Hughton.
'With Fraser Forster last season, there was a train of thought that we would have been better off keeping him here because he's a quality, young goalkeeper.
'Amongst what we have here, we also have to think about player development, and young players come into that one.
'That's where we will be with Nile. We haven't categorically made a decision on whether we'll loan him out or not.
'If we feel we're very strong in that position, and there are the right possibilities to loan him out, that's something we'll consider.
'He could certainly stay here and play a part, as he did last season, but we also have to think about his development and whether he'll get the amount of football he needs.
'He's still only 19 years of age. His development is important for us. You can improve players by giving them opportunities here or, at some stage of the season, allowing them to have the amount of football they need elsewhere.'
Ranger may well benefit for a season on loan, he never really managed to break into our first team last season, but did show some promise, the possibility of regular football may just be the key to bringing Ranger on, one thing is for certain, he isn't ready for life in the Premier League, unlike, erm, Shola?
Nothing has been decided on either player, but it is likely that Fraser at least will return to a team that has a lot of respect for him.
