Norwich City defender Russell Martin is confident the squad will not break up in the summer.

Norwich City defender Russell Martin is confident the squad will not break up in the summer.

Martin and midfielder Andrew Surman have both been mentioned as potential targets for last Sunday’s opponents, Newcastle United, while winger Anthony Pilkington’s early-season displays prompted reports that Liverpool were interested.

But Martin told the East Anglia Press: “I saw it, yes, but I don’t pay much attention to all that, to be honest. I don’t think any of the lads do.

“You get a lot of speculation and rumour in football. It’s just one of those things. It’s always nice to be linked with clubs but I’m really happy to be here.

“I think ‘Surs’ was linked as well. Holty has been linked with all sorts of clubs. It happens when you’re doing well. I think it’s a sign of the team’s success this season, but we’ve got a really happy bunch of lads here, so we don’t pay much attention to that.”
