None of Norwich City’s players will be leaving the club for anything less than ‘mouthwatering’ offers insists boss, Neil Adams.
Talking to the EDP, Adams made the point that the club are ready to act in case anyone leaves but insists that that will only be if exceptional offers are received.
Earlier this week, Nathan Redmond was linked with bids from Stoke and Southampton for around £3m – both of which were rejected.
Nathan is a player we want. There will be plenty of bids and we will knock them all back as best we can unless and until it becomes like the Robert Snodgrass situation, when it reaches a point you have to do business,” he said. “We have said we don`t need to sell many times, and that included Robert Snodgrass, and we will be trying our hardest to keep each and every single one of them. Of course speculation and rumours will be rife.”
Basically he’s saying that every player has their price. Even Suarez and Bale had their price at Liverpool and Spurs, so you have to be realistic. Leroy Fer has also been heavily linked with a move to QPR but Adams also quashed that one.
There is nothing in that. We can talk about bids for our players and we want to keep them all but we have to be realistic,” said Adams. “If an offer comes in that is many, many millions and is mouthwatering we have to be ready if we lose that player. We know other clubs will try to have a go at them, particularly now the World Cup has finished, I expect it will hot up now and if they do go we try to replace them with better ones.”
In terms of a transfer update, elsewhere Stoke are closing in on Liverpool winger, Oussama Assaidi which may end their interest in Redmond.
West Ham were heavily linked with finalising deals for two left backs yesterday by Sky Sports, thereby hopefully ending Sam Allardyce’s interest in Martin Olsson.
As for Leroy Fer, he’s on extended holiday after the World Cup with his model girlfriend in some beautiful beach location, which he occasionally tweets pictures of. Tough eh?!
