Norwich City look set to retain the service of Todd Cantwell this summer, with the Canaries receiving no official bid from Leeds United for the midfielder.
Leeds have been credited with an interest in Cantwell for almost a month now, but Sky Sports’ Transfer Centre (15/10, 11:45) is reporting that no official bid was fielded by those at Carrow Road.
Daniel Farke is now expected to retain the service of Cantwell, with the summer transfer window set to close tomorrow afternoon at 5pm.
Quiz: Do Huddersfield Town and Leeds United have these 10 things in common?
Cantwell scored six goals and registered two assists in the Premier League last season for Norwich, but couldn’t help the Canaries avoid relegation back into the Championship.
The midfielder started the win over Huddersfield Town on the opening day of the season and then featured again in the 2-2 draw with Preston North End. However, with speculation around his future intensifying, Farke opted to leave Cantwell out of his last two matchday squads. the Canaries suffered back-to-back defeats against AFC Bournemouth and Derby County.
Next up for Norwich is a clash with Rotherham United on Saturday.
Whilst Leeds might have been keen on Cantwell, there’s a big difference between that and actually making a move to sign the midfielder.
Norwich – after a couple of other key players sales – will have been keen to retain the service of the midfielder and it appears that his asking price was ultimately a stumbling block.
Focus at Norwich will now be on getting Cantwell’s mind right and back in the first-team picture. He could be a big player for Farke in the coming months.
