Leeds reported to have rejected �3.5m bid for Snodgrass from Norwich City

Norwich City were today reported to have had a �3.5million offer for winger Robert Snodgrass rejected by Leeds United.

The 23-year-old Scotland international is well known to City boss Paul Lambert after playing under him in his time as manager at Livingston.

Snodgrass is a former Livingston team-mate of another current Norwich forward in Wes Hoolahan.

He joined Leeds from Livingston in 2008 and helped them to promotion from League One in 2009-10.

Sky Sports today claimed the Canaries’ bid, which would represent a club record buy, had been rejected.

Stoke City and Newcastle United have previously been linked with Snodgrass, who has made 147 senior appearances for Leeds, scoring 28 goals.

Leeds midfielder Bradley Johnson has also been linked with the Canaries as they bid to strengthen their squad for the Premier League campaign, with Millwall striker Steve Morison poised to become their second new recruit of the close season for a reported �2.1m fee, rising to �2.8m.

Leeds United posted a statement on their website confirming that they had received a number of enquires from both home and abroad in relation to their players.

Leeds United CEO Shaun Harvey said: “It would be na�ve to believe that we would not receive any enquiries about our players who, collectively, achieved a seventh place finish in the Championship last season.

“We will continue our policy of not commenting on specific speculation, but would re-iterate our position that any players leaving will only do so in those circumstances that we believe represents the best interests of the club and has the full support of Simon Grayson.

“Our recruitment plans continue quietly behind the scenes and we have no intention of making public our targets.”
