Canaries’ midfielder Alex Tettey must fight for his place in Daniel Farke’s starting line up, after his wish for a potential loan stint was thwarted.

Tettey is quoted on Norway’s state broadcaster’s website, NRK, confirming City will not sanction a loan move despite interest in the combative midfielder.

The 31-year-old has yet to start a league game this season under the club’s new German head coach.

“Through my agent, I have been told that I’m not available for loans that are not for sale, and that I stay in Norwich,” he said. “I’m used to playing matches, preferably 90 minutes. It has not been the case in the first three games, so obviously I’m not happy with that.”

Tettey, who has a contract at Carrow Road until 2018, is represented by former Liverpool defender Bjørn Tore Kvarme.

“He would like to play more, but Norwich says that, ‘you stay here’,” he said. “He is under contract so what he thinks is really uninteresting. There has been interest from other clubs, but it helps little when the club is so clear that he is not available. But he’s fine, that’s right. Now he strives to play back on the team.”
