NORWICH City boss Neil Adams has insisted that the Canaries have not made a bid for Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes.

Norwich have this week been linked with a move for Rhodes, after Joe Royle joined the club as a consultant.

Former Everton and Manchester City boss Royle managed Rhodes at Ipswich.


“I’ve seen all the rumours,” Adams said.

“I think they’ve put two and two together and come up with 25.

“Obviously Joe Royle had him as a young player, and I played with his dad Andy Rhodes. That’s where the links are.

“We’ve made no offer for Jordan Rhodes – fantastic player, don’t get me wrong.

“Scores goals for fun, guarantees goals. But there’s been no offer.”

Norwich yesterday signed forward Lewis Grabban from Bournemouth.
