Last updated : 02 February 2006 By Rick Lamb
Among the huge number of Championship players about whom Norwich made an enquiry or for whom Norwich made an offer was Queens Park Rangers defender Danny Shittu, it has been revealed.

Rangers chairman Gianni Paladini said there were bids for the 26-year-old from City, Championship rivals Sheffield United and Premiership strugglers Birmingham, but that none came close to matchng their valuation of the player.

"The offers were derisory, nowhere near good enough and I said 'no way in the world'", said Paladini. "We've no intention of selling Danny anyway. He knows about the clubs that were after him and he's very happy to stay with us and help build up QPR.".
