The 22-year-old midfielder is back at Carrow Road after a spell on loan with Bolton, while Holloway needs midfield cover with Kagisho Dikgacoi linking up with South Africa in the African Cup of Nations.

But Holloway said: "There is nobody we should be linked with.

"I've made lots of phone calls, which I won't talk about. But there is nobody we are linked with at the moment.

"There are lots of fishing nets going out to see what we can get but we are not ready to trawl them in yet."

Holloway revealed he had a message for Dikgacoi, who could be absent for up to five weeks depending on how well South Africa do.

"I've never wished anyone bad luck in my life but I did, because that means we get him back quicker," he added.

"I said 'I hope you lose every game'. I shouldn't say that and it is a joke, I suppose, but really we could do without it."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
