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."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
