City Turn Down Offer For Tettey

City Turn Down Offer For Tettey


Norwich City have turned down an offer from an unnamed Premier League club for midfielder, Alex Tettey according to the player and his agent.

Talking to Norwegian daily paper VG, Tettey said:

"The club have rejected a referral from a Premier League club, except I can not say which team," says Tettey. "The Championship gets tough and hard with 46 games but it can be exciting if we start well."

The player`s agent, Bjorn Tore Kvarme confirmed the defensive midfielder was in demand.

"The only thing I can say is that a team in the Premier League wanted a trade, but that Norwich said no. They will keep Tettey so he can help the team again," he said. "He has a contract until June of 2015. Then it is not so much to get done."

He is currently out with a groin strain but according to Neil Adams, should return to training this week.

Clearly, he is wanted by Adams to play the same role as Bradley Johnson. I suspect that whether we keep him long term will depend on what happens during this season. Tettey has made no secret of his desire to play at the highest level, so if we fail to win promotion at the first time of asking then we will likely lose him for nothing.

As Jim Bowen used to say "That`s the gamble." I expect Alex can afford his BFH if he does leave next summer.

No indication he was dissatisfied with the Norwich "No." Likewise in the Wolf story, so there remains hope of a very strong championship squad. The year left on Tets contract though may well persuade us to deal.
