Worthington rules out moves for trio

Elliott Ward, Calum Davenport and David Norris look unlikely to be moving to Carrow Road this summer.

Norwich boss Nigel Worthington responded to rumours about the three players in typically honest fashion, appraising the situations regarding Davenport and Norris as well as utterly refuting any link with Ward.

"David Norris is a player we have been watching and we like but he's under a three-year contract and would probably prove too expensive," admitted Worthington, adding of Ward that, "There's nothing in that one."

The only ambiguity Worthington allowed was in his assessment of the Davenport situation. Davenport was at Carrow Road on loan last season and Tottenham boss Martin Jol is reportedly ready to offload the former Coventry defender for £1millon.

"The figure we were quoted by Spurs last year was £3m but we haven't got that sort of money," said Worthington, adding, "It isn't a huge amount of money that we have to work with."
