Norwich City keeper John Ruddy would be interested in a move to Chelsea this summer, according to Sky Sports.

The shot-stopper was called up for England after a string of impressive performances for the Canaries last season.

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Ruddy, with reports suggesting an initial £5m bid from the Blues had been rebuffed. It's thought Chris Hughton's side are holding out for a fee closer to £10m.

And the Sky Sports report claims Ruddy would be interested in speaking to Chelsea regarding a move.

But Norwich don't want to lose their talismanic keeper, and are preparing for the new season with him in their squad.

The former-Everton youngster has impressed at Carrow Road since arriving in 2010, and Chelsea are believed to want an understudy to current first-choice Petr Cech.

Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea's highly-rated young keeper, will spend another year on loan with Atletico Madrid. The Belgian shot-stopper has become one of La Liga's top goalkeepers, and made it clear he wanted first-team football rather than a bench role at Stamford Bridge.

Ross Turnbull, Chelsea's reserve last season, was released this summer after four years at the club. Ruddy would be brought in to play a similar role to Turnbull in previous campaigns.
