Wes Hoolahan will not be heading to Aston Villa after Norwich City rejected claims that he has handed in a transfer request.
Sky Sports claim that the player has not asked to move and he will not be leaving Carrow Road during this window.
The Norwich chief executive is adamant that no senior players will be leaving the club.
Hoolahan is eager to link up with former boss Paul Lambert at Aston Villa however the club reject, it appears Hollahan wants a £1.5 million move away from Carrow Road to Villa Park.
If the Irishman is to leave Norwich it would add fuel to the fire as there is already bad blood between Lambert and Norwich after his move to Villa following the departure of Lambert back in 2012.
With Aston Villa facing a home game against the leaders Arsenal next week. One would imagine that Lambert will want to have the deal done and dusted so he can include the 31 year old into his squad in time for the game on Monday night.
The pressure is on Lambert after he saw his side lose out to Sheffield United in the Fa Cup last weekend a defeat left the fans embarrassed.
Norwich have said that every transfer in this window will only go ahead if it will benefit the squad. There is no doubt that the possible departure of Hoolahan would be a blow to the Canaries as they occupy 15th in the league and struggling. The team have just one win in six league games.
With the side desperate for goals and attacking options Chris Houghton must do everything in his power to keep all his best players to salvage something from this season.
