Norwich City boss Neil Adams has denied claims striker Gary Hooper has submitted a transfer request following their relegation from the Premier League.

Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers have all been linked with the 26-year-old.

"There's been no transfer request from Gary Hooper," Adams told the Pink 'Un.

"I spoke to him two days ago and told him he's one of the players we need to keep. He can score goals, Gary Hooper can. He will be a big part of the squad, along with many, many others.

"So I understand - there's bound to be this sort of speculation and rumour, and somebody can make a throwaway comment that suddenly becomes national news.

"But Gary Hooper has not handed in a transfer request and I've told him I need him here to hopefully be part of pushing this team back into the Premier League, and he was happy with that."
