Norwich starlets Ben Godfrey and Max Aarons have been urged to snub any offers from Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham this summer.
The pair have played their part in the Canaries’ Championship-winning campaign this season, attracting the attention of Premier League clubs along the way.
Godfrey, 21, has been linked with United, apparently on the recommendation of Rio Ferdinand, while Liverpool and Spurs are also thought to have noticed the pair’s superb form.
But Norwich keeper Tim Krul has urged Godfrey and 19-year-old Aarons not to rush their next moves.
Former Newcastle stopper Krul said: “We all know when the big money is going to be offered, heads are going to get turned.
“But if Manchester United come in at 19 or 20 years old, there is no point sitting on the bench.
“They have to play. I will tell them. The money will come to these lads.
“When you look at how well they have done this year, some of them were in the Under-23s last year and no-one knew about them.
“Now they are massively sought after talent and rightly so. Every credit being thrown at them, they deserve.
“But what a chance for them to play week in week out if they stay. I can’t wait to see them on the big stage next year.
“Max Aarons is 19 now, can you imagine to have won the Championship and have a year behind him in the Premier League, that is more important than anything.”
