Highly-rated midfielder Ben Godfrey will not be part of the exodus from Carrow Road as the club’s hierarchy have no intention of selling him on.
In recent weeks Josh Murphy and James Maddison have both moved as Norwich face life without the Premier League parachute payments, but Eastern Daily Press report that Godfrey is not one of those on the move.
Godfrey signed a new four-year deal just over a year ago, then spent last season on loan at League One high-flyers Shrewsbury Town.
West Brom and Swansea had been rumoured to be looking at the 20-year old, who so far has just six Norwich appearances to his name.
His form last season caught the eye as he appeared 51 times for Shrewsbury in all competitions, helping them to the League One play offs and a Checkatrade Trophy Final appearance.
Godfrey started life at York City before moving to Middlesbrough as a youth. He later went back to his hometown club, making his debut as a 17-year old in 2015.
This may be music to the ears of Norwich fans, or they may wonder why it is such good news that a player with six appearances is staying whilst all their best players are leaving. Hearing Godfrey is staying put is going to be a crumb of comfort, nothing more, as they face up to life as one of the Championship’s mid table sides.
