Norwich transfer target Danny Seaborne has turned down the offer of a new deal at Exeter, according to reports.

The 22-year-old defender, is out of contract at the end of the season and was the subject of a bid from the Canaries during the autumn, which the Grecians described as “derisory”.

A second City bid also failed but with Seaborne clearly eager to move on, there may yet be room to manoeuvre for Norwich manager Paul Lambert.

Speaking recently about the transfer speculation, Seaborne said: “I wasn't disappointed at all when the club rejected the Norwich fee. It was the club's decision and whatever the club does I will stand by because they have never done any injustice to me in the past.

“I just want to keep playing well and that's what I'm going to do and carry on until the end of my contract. I'm flattered to be linked to them (Norwich) but I'm an Exeter player at the moment and I want to do well for this club.

“But if I do stay here or move on to another club then I want to use that club as a stepping stone. That's no disrespect to Exeter or any other club, I have always said that I would use any club to go on to bigger and better things.”
