Reports Norwich City is lining up a £6m move for Preston North End's attacker Callum Robinson are false.

Sky Sports News claimed on Saturday morning City were ready to swoop for the Republic of Ireland international, who notched 12 goals and provided three assists for Alex Neil's side in 27 Championship appearances last season.

Preston's official twitter feed, however, wasted little time later on Saturday confirming they have no bids 'on the table' for any of their players.

That tallies with the view from inside Carrow Road, with no bid made and the Canaries not planning to make any future move for the 24-year-old.

City's rumoured interest would appear designed to whip up speculation around the highly-rated Robinson, who is under contract at Deepdale until 2020.

Norwich have brought in Patrick Roberts on loan from Manchester City for the Premier League campaign, while Swiss international Josip Drmic will officially become a Norwich player on July 1.

But Robinson is not on City's transfer wish list.

The former Aston Villa trainee can operate anywhere across the frontline, but was used predominantly down the left flank last season.

He featured in the 2-0 Carrow Road league defeat last season but missed the Deepdale return game which was Norwich's only defeat on the run in to promotion.

The pacy wide player failed to make the grade at Villa Park and has spent the past five seasons at Deepdale, although he only completed a free transfer in 2016 after a series of loan deals.

Daniel Farke's squad return for pre-season training on Monday as they prepare for the big kick off at Liverpool on August 9.
