Millwall have rejected a transfer request from striker Steve Morison.

The 27-year-old Wales international asked for a move after Premier League new boys Norwich reportedly had two bids for him turned down.

But Millwall are determined to keep hold of their top scorer, who has hit 40 goals in two seasons since arriving at The Den from Stevenage.

A statement from the Lions read: "Millwall can confirm the club has received a written transfer request from Steve Morison.

"This request has been rejected.

"There has been regular speculation surrounding Steve's future but he was rewarded with a new contract at Millwall in February which runs through to June 2013."
