A statement on the Norwich City website refutes reports that any of the club's players have handed in transfer requests.

CITY can confirm no transfer requests have been received from any players this season.

Chief Executive David McNally said: “The Club’s focus is on improving the squad during this transfer window.”

He commented: “As we’ve always said, no players will be sold against our will. We’ve received no transfer requests this season and have no intention of releasing any of our senior players.

“Our focus this January, as with every transfer window, is very much on improving the squad.

It looks highly likely that Wes Hoolahan will leave Norwich City during the January transfer window following news that he has handed in a transfer request at Norwich City.

The Telegraph reports that former Norwich manager and current Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert wants to make him his first signing this month.

Lambert tabled an offer for the Republic of Ireland international late last week and wants to make the playmaker his first signing of the January transfer window as he attempts to ease the growing pressure by recruiting experience.

The Villa manager has identified a creative midfielder as a top priority this month and his opening bid for Hoolahan was rejected by his old club, paving the way for the 31-year-old to submit a written transfer request.

The paper also say that Hoolahan has told teammates that he will never play for Norwich again and that Paul Lambert's relationship with his old club could be an obstacle to the transfer.

If the move means more regular first team football for the midfielder then it would certainly be a good move for him and the Ireland team.
