City chief Paul Lambert today insisted the likes of Grant Holt and Wes Hoolahan are not for sale.

But when asked it he was bracing himself for offers for some of his stars, Lambert told the official site:

‘No, because they’re not going anywhere. I don’t lose sleep over that, honestly I don’t. Because if I let anyone go from this Club at the minute then I’m pretty sure they’ll be a line of a thousand people trying to get to me!’

The news will bring some New Year cheer to Canary supporters concerned that the club may be forced to cash-in on some of the better performers such as top scorer Holt and the influential Hoolahan.

There has also been speculation that some of the fringe player such as Paul McVeigh, Jamie Cureton and the hapless Michael Theoklitos may be shipped out this month, but Lambert appeared today to rule that out as well – for the time being at least.

‘Not at the minute no,’ Lambert said when asked if he was expecting any imminent departures.

‘We can’t, the squad isn’t big enough at this minute in time. As I said before it’s big enough in numbers, but a lot of those haven’t played many first team games and a lot of them are young kids. So it’s not ideal.’
