Norwich City fans have been waking up to news of a potential summer exit for popular midfielder Jonny Howson.
As we revealed exclusively this morning, Howson has rejected a new contract and made it clear he will not pledge his long-term future to the club.
Full story: Jonny Howson wants out at Norwich City
The Yorkshireman is understood to want a return north with his young family, with the 29-year-old having two years of his current contract remaining.
Howson was named player of the season by City fans in 2016 and finished as runner-up this year, with Wes Hoolahan lifting the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy ahead of him.
The former Leeds United captain is widely considered to have been the Canaries’ most consistent player in a tumultuous spell for the club which has included Premier League relegation and a failure to keep pace with the Championship promotion race.
He scored six goals in 38 games last season – including a goal of the season contender against Nottingham Forest – and has made a total of 188 appearances since joining in January 2012, scoring 24 goals.
See above for some of the reaction from City fans.
