Chris Hughton: Says reports in Holland were not accurate

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."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
