No relegation clause for Norwich summer arrival van Wolfswinkel

Norwich boss Chris Hughton has denied there is a relegation clause to allow Ricky van Wolfswinkel not to arrive at Carrow Road in the summer.

The club have agreed an £8.5m four-year deal with Sporting Lisbon for the 24-year-old Dutch striker but the player's agent, Louis Laros, was reported earlier this week as saying the move was dependent on Norwich staying in the Barclays Premier League.

But Hughton said: "I have heard those reports but the facts are that he has signed for Norwich City and I expect to see him on the first of July.

"Any talk of a relegation clause in the contract is not fact. That is where we are and we look forward to seeing him next season."
