Chief denies Hammers £4m bid talk
Norwich chief executive David McNally has rubbished reports claiming West Ham have bid £4million for striker Grant Holt.
The 31-year-old looks set to depart Carrow Road this summer after reiterating his desire to leave having had an initial transfer request turned down by the club in the past two weeks.
And, while former boss Paul Lambert is being tipped to make a bid for Holt following his move to Aston Villa this weekend, it was reported that West Ham chief Sam Allardyce had already made a bid to sign the player, who scored 15 goals to help Norwich secure a 12th-placed Premier League finish.
However McNally has wasted no time in responding to reports that the Hammers have tested the water with an offer by dismissing them out of hand.
He wrote on Twitter: "Just for the record, we have not received a £4m bid for Grant from West Ham as apparently is being suggested."
