Norwich intent on keeping Swansea targets Pilkington, Redmond

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has made it clear that he is planning to keep two of his wanted players.

Midfielder Anthony Pilkington was the subject of a reported £3million bid from Swansea City while talented winger Nathan Redmond has also attracted interest from the Welsh club.

But Hughton was firm on the pair when asked if there was anything in the speculation linking them with the Swans.

"At this time, any potential rumours for our players is a testament to what we are trying to do here," said Hughton.

"It is not generally particularly welcome, of course, but if there are rumours, then we must be doing something right.

"However, there is no fact in any bid for Anthony from Swansea, while Nathan is very happy here.

"He is one who has had a lot of involvement here.

"Nathan is a very well-grounded young man who is improving his game week in, week out. He is a very mature young man and we are delighted to have him here and he wants to develop and improve here."
