Norwich City boss Glenn Roeder has denied he will be making any move for out-of-contract Aberdeen midfielder Barry Nicholson - but says he is confident new players will arrive at Carrow Road within the next few weeks.

Reports claimed Nicholson's agent had urged Roeder to move quickly if he wanted to sign the 29-year-old player.

But Roeder told the club's official website he has no intention of making any move for the player and added he had so far not missed out on a single player he was actually interested in signing.

He commented: "I have no intention of signing Nicholson and to be honest I'm unhappy with agents who talk up their players supposedly going to clubs regardless of whether or not any bid has actually been made.

"Contrary to several reports in the last few weeks I have not missed out on players I have been interested in. There has not been one player I'm seriously interested in signing who I have missed out on so far.

"I am however very, very busy at the moment working on several possibilities and I am confident players will be starting to arrive at Carrow Road within the next three to four weeks. For obvious reasons I can't say who they are at the moment because I don't want to alert anyone else as to who our targets might be."
