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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
