Birmingham media reported on Tuesday that Hoolahan had asked to leave Carrow Road for Villa, where former Norwich boss Paul Lambert is manager.

But City chief executive David McNally has shot down the claims and insisted none of the club's senior players will be sold this month.

He said: "The club's focus is on improving the squad during this transfer window.

"As we've always said, no players will be sold against our will. We've received no transfer requests this season and have no intention of releasing any of our senior players.

"Our focus this January, as with every transfer window, is very much on improving the squad."

Hoolahan, 31, is in his sixth season at Norwich but has started just five Premier League games this term.

The Republic of Ireland international was missing at the weekend as Norwich drew with Fulham in the third round of the FA Cup, but manager Chris Hughton said after the game his absence was down to injury.

"Wes at this moment is having treatment," he said. "There has been no bid that I am aware of, absolutely not."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
