Norwich consultant and former Man City manager Joe Royle has told Norwich that keeping Robert Snodgrass is a priority to boost the likelihood of them returning to the Premier League.
Speaking to talkSPORT he said that Norwich are desperate to keep hold of the Scottish international after their relegation to the Sky Bet Championship. As one of the few highlights of last season, he has attracted the attention of the scouts of West Ham, Hull and Newcastle. All have been reported to be tracking the midfielder, with bids in the region of £4 million expected.
But Royle, who joined Norwich to aid new manager Neil Adams, told Alan Brazil: “We are all hoping he will be here next year. He’s got a great attitude and we think very highly of him.
“I’m told that right to the last whistle of the last game he was doing his best to win a game for Norwich. He’s the type you want around.
“It would be nice if we could keep the majority of players that Neil knows but there will inevitably one or two departures and there will be two or three incoming players.”
