Chris Hughton claimed that no further bids were tabled for Leeds United captain Robert Snodgrass, after several bids were quashed by the Elland Road outfit.
Sky Sports are now claiming that a fee has in fact been agreed between Leeds United and Norwich City regarding Glaswegian winger Robert Snodgrass.
A stark comparison to what Norwich boss Chris Hughton claimed just this morning.
It is believed that Leeds’ Robert Snodgrass is now heading to Carrow Road to carry out talks over the possible move from Championship to Premier League.
Norwich City finished in 12th place last season, after back to back promotions with current Villain Paul Lambert. Now under the courtship of ex Birmingham City manager Chris Hughton, it seems feeding off the talents of Leeds United is now instilled within Carrow Road.
Neil Warnock spoke publicly of how Robert Snodgrass had his ‘head turned’ by the approaches of Norwich City. With good friends Bradley Johnson and Johnny Howson already at Norwich City, it is no mean feat guessing who has persuaded the scot to exit Elland Road, after a comendable 190 appearences since his move from Livingston in 2008.
With the club currently spending money on new additions to the squad, fans will be praying that finally the sale of our best player will help generate the funds for a player that will turn heads for the right reasons.
There isn’t a shadow of doubt that seeing Robert Snodgrass half way out of the door is a sad day for Leeds United fans. Like Neil Warnock, fans were hoping the current takeover talk could have helped persaude ‘Snoddy’ to stay with Leeds United and become a true Leeds United legend.
However, the former Livingston man looks to be plucking his feathers for a taste of the big time.
Small fish in a big pond certainly springs to mind.
