Chris Hughton: Says reports in Holland were not accurate

The Sporting Lisbon striker has agreed a four-year deal to join the Norfolk club in the summer.

But he recently told magazine Voetbal International that the Canaries were looking to bring in an attacking midfielder and two wide players this summer.

And now Hughton has been quick to put the 24-year-old's comments in context.

"I did hear the reports and they are certainly not accurate," said the City boss.

"Of course we will very much look to improve the squad. It is probably quite obvious the area we haven't done as well as we would like this season and that is the ability to score goals and win matches.

"It isn't rocket science they are key areas we would be looking at. Ricky is an indication of what we wanted to bring in - a forward with a very good goalscoring record.

"Certainly no specific individuals were spoken about or positions."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
