Leeds loosen grip on Snodgrass
Leeds captain Robert Snodgrass is heading to Norwich for talks, despite Chris Hughton denying that the Canaries have upped their bid.
Snodgrass has 12 months remaining on his present deal at Elland Road and has been offered a new contract which would make him Leeds' highest-paid player. Leeds rejected offers for the 24-year-old Scotsman last week - reported to be £1.75million before an increased £2.25million approach was also declined. There had also been reports of a fresh bid but City boss Hughton dismissed it as speculation when quizzed about the negotiations following his side's 1-0 pre-season friendly win at Celtic on Tuesday night. "We did put a bid in for him a week or so ago and that is where we are at," said Hughton. "He is a player we would like, hence the reason we made the bid but of course he is a Leeds United player and until we are told otherwise that will be the case." Norwich, who have held a long-standing interest in Snodgrass, first made a move for the Scottish international last summer but that bid was also rejected.
