Tettey Confirms Rosenborg Talks

Tettey Confirms Rosenborg Talks

Alex Tettey has confirmed that his representatives have spoken to Rosenborg about a potential summer return to Norway.

The combative midfielder has been at Norwich since Chris Hughton signed him from Rennes in 2012 for a reported £2m, which seems a bit of a bargain now.

He has made over 140 appearances for the Canaries and has scored 5 goals (including that screamer against Sunderland) and he is in the final year of his contract. However, it doesn`t look as though he will be staying.

Here`s a quote from a story in Norwegian outlet VG Sporten

"Those I`m working with have talked to Rosenborg. I can certainly say that. It is Bjørn Tore Kvarme who has talked with them. None of the parties (his representatives or Norwich) have attempted to get a conversation about (an extension)."

Tettey`s partner is from Trondheim and she is apparently keen on a return to Norway so it looks as though he`ll be off at the end of the season.

He is no doubt one of the club`s current high earners and as we heard at the AGM on Wednesday evening, there is a need to reduce the financial outlay.

It does rankle with me a little that a very decent player like Tettey is leaving and the likes of Matt Jarvis and Steven Naismith will probably remain.

The 31 year old can still do an important job for City and I`m betting that he will return to the midfield as soon as he`s fit for the second and potentially crucial, second half of the season.

Good point on why Jarvis and Naismith are not rumoured to be moving on, Tuckster.

Because they will not do a ' Steve Miller band ' : )
