​Norwich director Webber: Stars won't go cheap

Norwich City director Stuart Webber is adamant the team will not lose star players on the cheap.

As is the case every summer, clubs are circling around relegated sides to try and get good deals on their best players.

While Norwich are already relegated, Webber does not believe the club is forced to have a fire sale to stay financially afloat.

Max Aarons, Ben Godfrey and Emi Buendia are among those linked with moves away to Premier League or European sides.

"We are difficult to negotiate with when we are selling, and we hold all the cards on our young players," Webber told reporters.

"Not one of them has less than three years left on their contracts. They owe us, we owe them.

"They are homegrown, and British players cost more. That is almost a Premier League tax these days.

"We are fortunate we have a few of them. I am sure there will also be interest in our younger ones, but that will be on our terms."
